Yep, worth saving.
I have a rope operated pulley system at home but it is not an endless one so you have to hold onto it if you use it.

Old Goat, Does the unit you have still the original paint, I have offered to take it off Ian and restore it for display. I think these items are just as important as engines and driven plant.
