TITLE
Pulley winding handle for elevators
ARTICLE
A pulley winding handle for turning elevators at Express Asphalt Stockport has eliminated the danger of trapped fingers and muscle strains. These were real dangers of the previous method – turning the gearbox pulley by hand or pulling the drive belts. The design for the tool is simple: a clamp plate fixes the handle to the pulley spokes and is welded to a redundant starter handle for a generator.
