This is pretty similar to the kind of stuff I'm hunting down and selling.
I seem to be mostly dealing in vintage cast iron and barn pulley stuff.
I've got a couple of barn hay trolleys I'm pondering for projects.
I'm building a house this year, so I'm planning on making an industrial
chandelier with pulleys, chain, a barn trolley and some old oil lanterns
to hang over our dining table.
I'm thinking about building a couple of them to sell too.
My people kind of make fun of me now for the way I'm hunting this stuff.
When it's deer season, I see deer everywhere I drive. Fishing time, I see ponds
hidden in the brush, turkey season I see strutting toms. Now....I see old barns
junk piles, busted up houses..............treasure chests.
If anyone is a plumber or tearing down houses.....I'm looking for a pile of old cast water and gas line shutoff valves-knobs etc. Take all you can find if the price is fair.

I don't know why, but when I see perfectly good stuff, about to be thrown away, I grab it.
This thing is heavy as crap and workable. I love the look but have no idea what to do with it.
