  • Snatch Block! I want to take a moment to thank those of you who support Smarter Every Day on Patreon. I'd also like to point out 2 things about this video. #1. You'll notice Jeremy Fielding is in this video. He's the "Contraption Fabricator" that's started working with me now because of your support on Patreon. He's a great designer, father, and friend. You'll be seeing more of Jeremy around thanks to those who support at www.patreon.com/smartereveryday/ #2. If you'd like to 3D print the Snatch Blocks and pulleys we use in this video they are here: www.thingiverse.com/thing:4022579 #3. I really enjoy KiwiCo and I think you will too. I got them as a Christmas gift for my children years ago, and it was a huge hit. It was after that experience that I reached out to their team and asked if I could advertise for them because of how good it was for our family. I think you'll enjoy it too. www.kiwico.com/smarter It was 3 things... I ended up pointing out 3 things.

    • @melanieenmats you are right. Gears and pulleys are just more sophisticated levers. And with lever you lose distance but you gain force.

  • You would love watching a drilling rig trip pipe. The one I work on has a 12 line block being pulled by a 2000 hp draw works. Capable of lifting 1.2 million pounds.

  • I got a story form trucking in Michigan so in Michigan trucks can be 80 ton gross and no permanent so this guy gets his 80 ton tanker trailer stuck in a ditch and gets him self out by using very big rope pulleys and raping one drive tire to make a winch and pulls the hole truck and trailer up onto the road i think he said was out in like 45 minutes

  • A pulley is basically a lever on an axl. But instead of a longer lever you just need more rope and pulleys.

  • Only Dustin can walk up to a work crew fixing a barrier and say "hey dudes, can I film your snatch blocks?" and they say "Sure, no problem". And also message superstar astronaut Chris Hadfield and say "hey dude, can you film a little piece about using snatch blocks in space?" and he says "Sure, no problem"

  • It's called the working factor... the formula is... the number of ropes on the movable sheaves is the working factor of the set of blocks...if 2 ropes are attached to the movable sheaves the working factor is 2:1.. if 4 are attached its 4:1 and so on .. 8 on the movable sheaves is 8:1...you get 8 lbs of pull on the movable sheaves with each 1 lb applied forse on the pull rope... hence an 8:1 working factor
