Item details

Large Hook & Pulley by Yale & Towne Industrial Salvage Architectural Hardware Display Piece of Cast Iron: Differential Pulley Block by Yale: 1 Ton.

You will not believe the look and feel of this massive old pulley block. It's intimidating in its size and patina of age. It's been around a long time, and it shows. But it's in really good condition considering its age, estimated to be closing on 100 years at this point, if not older!

This is an awesome piece to bring the flavor of history, and the might of American Industry to any setting. It celebrates the evolution from direct manual labor to simple machines used to multiply effort. Using pulleys, one man can do the work of three or four. It's amazing!

This Yale & Towne pulley is a beautiful representative of the Industrial Revolution and the innovation that was part of it. The side of one wheel reads "1 TON. YALE & TOWNE MFG . CO. STAMFORD CONN. U.S.A." The other reads "YALE 1 TON DIFFERENTIAL PULLEY BLOCK". One side still has the pin in the wheel, the other side has an old nail. Even the hook, which swivels all the way around, is embossed with "YALE & TOWNE" on both sides! You will LOVE this block and tackle!

The pulley wheel is about 8 inches across. The entire piece is about 15 inches long, and about 5 inches wide. There are, of course, a variety of 'love marks' that come with the age of such a hard working piece of industrial hardware salvage. And it's HEAVY... weighing in at almost 18 pounds! Depending on your location, we will ship this item via either USPS or FedEx Indirect Signature. As with any vintage treasure, please review the photos carefully before you buy, and use the 'zoom' button at the bottom of the pictures for an enlarged view.

Recent feedback: "The seller was awesome to work with, the piece of art was delivered extremely quickly and was packaged with such care I think "Newman" could have delivered it without breaking it. Thank you!"

For smaller items we normally ship USPS, as this has proven to be the most cost effective method. For larger items, we normally ship FedEx Ground. Our goal is to get your purchase to you safely and quickly for a reasonable cost. While our number one goal is to make you a happy customer, please keep in mind that we don't control the shipping services we use. We will always provide a shipping notification once your package is being shipped, and whenever possible, we will include a tracking number. *USPS tracking numbers do not work for international shipments, even though they are provided by the USPS.

IF you are having your order shipped to an apartment or other multi-unit housing, we highly recommend adding 'Signature Confirmation' to your order. It's not very expensive, and can prevent the loss of your order. Even on insured shipments, if the Post Office marks your package as having been delivered (even if that means set on a table in your lobby, etc.), they are done with it, and they will not consider an insurance claim if you never see your package. We cannot guarantee the safe delivery of your package to an apartment or other multi-unit building, but 'Signature Confirmation' is one way to help.

When we ship FedEx, it is normally via FedEx Ground, Home Delivery with Indirect Signature. This means they can have a neighbor sign for it as well. If you are having it shipped to a business address, it will just ship FedEx Ground, without a signature required. If your order varies from this, we will notify you ahead of time.

Insurance or other shipping options will be an additional cost to the buyer. When shipping internationally, involving customs, we will fill out the necessary paperwork as provided through the USPS or FedEx. Any customs fees are the responsibility of the buyer.

Whenever possible, we use clean reclaimed packing materials in our shipments. This will also mean using reclaimed boxes to ship with. This helps keep your shipping rates down. We should mention that we are such freaks about making sure nothing breaks that you may find some pretty wild packaging. It's true. We will use any sort of clean, reclaimed packaging We can get our hands on in order to feel confident that your item will arrive safely.


We accept credit cards through the Etsy direct checkout process, as well as Etsy gift cards, and we also accept Paypal. You do not need a Paypal account in order to use it for purchases in this shop.

Returns & exchanges

Being shoppers and buyers ourselves, we make every effort to provide complete details and revealing photos of every item. Rather than complicate the transaction with refunds, we ask that you inspect the listing carefully before buying. And by all means, if you have any questions or doubts, please contact us before buying. While we always strive to offer you vintage, up-cycled, or handmade items in great condition, we cannot guarantee their condition or suitability for your purposes. And while we are passionate about excellent customer service, we do not generally offer refunds.

Additional policies

We are more than happy to put an item on RESERVE for you for 24 hours if you need a little more time to complete the purchase transaction. Also, for our handmade items, many can be customized to your liking, for a reasonable additional charge. Just convo us with your ideas and we will work it out with you.
