Interesting, I agree.

Using a clevis for a snatch block is hard on the cable though.

And standing ''inside the snatch'' is a definite rigging no-no--although I guess that there were a lot better chances of getting maimed with what they were doing.

Nice. What is that man doing on the bigwheel or whim, so it's called in the video? It can be seen at 3:00. My gues is he is operating the brakes of the wheels for steering. And braking of course.

Fascinating! It's hard to imagine that such slow, inefficient methods of hand-hewing ties was ever practical.

The way he rigged up the two-man saw for solo use was pretty clever.
