Re: [bolger] Block Parts rides again
One more resource - "The Rigger's Apprentice" by Brion Toss has a small
section on rope-stropped blocks. Some recommendations on sheave sizes and a
couple of simple diagrams on fiddle shapes and sizes. It will also teach
you how to do the rope work. Probably not worth buying the book for just
the block info but the it's a great resource for traditional rigging.
