I'm getting a lot of use out of the old freight elevator gearing. Appleseed used some of them to actuate the revolving TV wall. The pulley wheel is enormous and very heavy. We kicked around several possible uses for it. One thought was to use it as a chandelier, but it's pretty heavy and I was worried that if it ever fell it would go straight through the floor and/or my head. We decided a dining room table might be a little safer. Ben welded together a table base and it will be topped with glass. You can see the result below (minus the glass).
We're going to use the elevator car itself for something, too, but I'll let you guess at what that will be until it's built and I have some pictures.
