Okay, not industrial, but it is a forerunner to the food vending trucks of today.

interesting use of a Model A Vicky. Since there haven't been too many Model t's been posted, lets add the A's to this thread as well. I don't know how to change the title, so maybe Tom will see this and lend a hand.

It looks like a winch for launching a glider.  And it is a hell of a ride if you ever get the chance.  The winch is stationed at the far end of the takeoff runway and it has several thousand feet of cable on a drum.  Once they start winding the cable on that big drum you just pull back on the stick and you will really climb.  Since the cable is effectively getting shorter as you climb higher, the trick is knowing when to release the glider from the cable.  The cable then falls to the ground while you go looking for some other form of natural lift or prepare to land back where you started.  The last winch I flew off of was powered by a hemi no less.

Thanks Roger, that makes sense now. I've seen a cable set used to launch R/C gliders before. Somehow, I doubt that wire cage would stop much if that cable snapped.

Very cool stuff Bowtie! I was just talking to my brother a couple weeks ago about a spring company that used to be here in town, it was originally a blacksmith shop. I would go over there to purchase springs and assorted hardware, the office was stacked from floor to ceiling with EVERY receipt ever written from the business! Couldn't see the 3 or 4 roll top desks buried underneath all the paperwork! All the power tools used to be run from leather belts once powered by a model T I was told! pretty much like your picture shows. There was like a pit that the owner would back the T into in the morning and then drive it home at night! I only got to witness the belt driven equipment like drill presses and saws and an industrial type riveter. Powered then by a big electric motor.   Joe

If a 4" chop looks good on a Model A what would this one take, 12-14" maybe?
