Thanks Ray; interesting book & diagrams - some of the maths looks a bit beyond my level !
The 'Safety Hook' is an exact copy of a patented English type, the Ormerod. Perhaps they didn't patent it in the US (unlikely ?).
I had wondered, but was too polite to say so, why you are modelling a '4 Post' headframe. I know they do exist but always struck me as a strange design considering the uni-directional winding/braking forces involved.
