Double-pulley rope block & tackle... Canadian source?

joel_bc(z6 BC)March 27, 2006

Hi,

I'm looking for a double-pulley block & tackle (hook at bottom end), made for use with a rope, not a chain. I need a medium-duty unit for hoisting loads of up to 250 lbs - but durable. Pulley's in the range of 4 - 5 inches would be about right.

I'm in western Canada, and don't want to deal with cross-border duties.

I've looked at Canadian Tire (they have "toy" units with about a 2" (or less) pulley size, and a rope about like venetian-blind cord. Couldn't find anything in the Princess Auto catalogue.

Anybody know where I can get such a thing... seems to be a bit of a vanishing creature. Thanks.

Joel

I thought I should add that I have been checking semi-regularly in second-hand stores and pawn shops. Seemed an obvious possibly source, but no luck yet.

Joel,

have you considered checking with area theatrical supply houses? My husband and I work in the industry (rock and roll concert lighting to be exact) and block and fall are a common find in a lighting warehouse. If you can locate them via that source they should suit your weight needs and most should be rope style.

joel,
You might check with Tractor Supply(TSC), I believe they have stores in both the USA and Canada. Here they have the block and tackle, donÂt know about Canada. They will order if not in stock.
