In an 8/21/07 Don described a sliding door pulley made by the Allith Prouty company. Believe it or not, my husband & I live in Oregon and have one of pulleys he described. The pulley is stamped w/a patent date of Nov 18, 1901 but was made on Dec 9, 1903.

Does anyone have any idea who may now have the patent? Any idea where we could get several more pulleys? My husband is restoring an historic barn here in Oregon and we need several to finish the project.
