Stan, To the best of my knoweledge, Paulsen-Knudsen Pullies Corp. is the only manufacturer of fine, scale, functional pullies on teh planet. Unfortunately, there is quite a backlog, and to complicate matters, all the the "wheel" part of the pullies, manufactured to date, were stored in one container which just fell 1000's of scale feet to the floor. Some will say old man Knudsen is just tryin to run the prices up. I say I got alot of pickin up to do Thank God we don't have carpet!Originally posted by Steam Donkey
Does anybody know where a fellow can purchase the blocks and other metal wheely thingys found on the spar poles?
These new pullies really have little plastic people at P-K-P sweatin' plast bricks! They see layoffs, soup lines, don'tcha feel bad Pete???
Are those babies functional? They sure look like it!
I really like those pullies, are they Billings Boats parts.

Hi Drew, some items can be bought from "Billings Boats" they are really for boats, but some are ideal for H0 - Don't know if they have a website or not.

these blocks measure 9" in HO scale. They are made for model ships, I got these from "the ship chandler", a hobby shop in Mount Prospect, Il.. They are cast pewter, the manufacturer's name is unknown to me right now. I don't have record, and there are several who make ship parts.
Do you have a website address for The Ship Chandler" or an address?
