    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 https://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: https://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. https://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.

                    So the diameter of the pulley has a lot to do with it also.

                      Yeah the ratio changes each time the rope goes around the circumference of that pulley.

                                                    If only they'd come up with a better name than snatch block; too many connotations.
