That looks awesome Edison! Can’t wait to see it in action!

Nice and relatively simple, I like. Looks like you have a pulley next to what looks like your rope hook. Is that just for extra traction or is there something else there?

looking good! Can’t wait to see it in action.

Nice can’t wait to see it on the robotic in a competition

We had difficulty winding the rope around a thin shaft so we tried different wheels and pulleys. The pulley above the hook just happened to be the right size so we used it.

Nice, but how consistent is it?

Just tested it a few days ago. Nearly perfectly consistent albeit a little slow. We’ll be steadily lowering the reduction until we get a consistent and fast speed. Preferably sub-5 seconds.
