This is my lift. It is used to get to the hangars for my lego ships (shelves). It has two stations, the top on, which is situated on the top of the hangars, and the bottom statio, which is on the table. The rope is usually on a slant, because the lift is most offenly used to go from table station to top station. The rope is secured to the top station by a winch, and the bottom by magnets. When you release the magnets the rope (and lift) sing untill the rope is vertical from the top lifing station. Then the winch can lower or raise the lift to different hangars.
