TIL There's a YouTube channel dedicated to elevators (lifts). This one is of the St Louis Centre's freight elevator


There are apparently elevator enthusiasts all around the world

From UC Berkley, this is an in depth breakdown of the elevator (lift) operation mechanism, minus the electronics


It includes the pulley layout, structural frame, counterweights, breaks, and safety implementation. Even the bolts holding together each component are shown

I have no idea why I spent this time watching elevator videos, but this one seemed pretty cool. I guess I'm in a lifted mood
