Description

This large stringing snatch block was salvaged in Fernandida Beach, Florida. It was likely used in a marine environment to distribute underwater wire or cable used in the transmission of information or electricity (e.g. telephone and power lines). The aluminum sheave measures 38" in diameter and is 3" wide.
A nylon band lines the groove of the sheave to protect the rope or cable as well as the pulley itself. The block, with a regular shackle connection, is composed of steel.

Condition: Good for age and use. Solid piece with surface oxidation and paint loss as expected with age and use.

Salvage History: This pulley block was salvaged off the coast of Fernandina Beach, Florida, with the help of a marine salvage diving company. Watch our very own Mike Whiteside take a dive for this treasure, and more, in Season 9, Episode 13, of the DIY Network show "Salvage Dawgs".
