    Are you sure this is Poma. The sheaves do not look like Poma at all. I think it might be Samson.

    It is a Samson with Poma towers. If you look under Samson in, you will find it.

    Sucks that this lift is getting removed, it was such a cool piece of history. And it’s replacement isn’t even going to be detachable, they really need more than 1 detachable at Orford.
