Ropes, Knots & Mechanical Advantage


with Robert Riversong

Calendar Apr 7, 2020 at 6 pm, runs for 1 week

Before the days of motors, hydraulic lifts, and heavy machinery, homesteaders, mariners and workers improvised simple mechanical advantage systems to make hard work easy. Beginning with an introduction of ropes and knots, we will look at a variety of pulley systems, principles of leverage and friction-reduction, anchoring systems, simple vector mechanics to understand directional forces, and personal safety issues. We will have hands-on training in knot-tying.
