Another Salada Thread Hijack !!

Si: these photos show the shaft headgear & winding sheave wheel that is normally 'hidden' under the roof cupola of U.S. style small mines.

Firstly the view from outside :


And views of the inside :

(not an overwind release anywhere !!).

And what must be the shortest wind between collar & headsheave almost anywhere.

Amazingly this was wound directly off an electric winder - the Banksman (winder operator) could have only had a couple of seconds or less to disengage the winder clutch ! :
