How to use "Pulley-block" in context?

The pulley-block is a simple machine that is used to raise or lowers materials, typically by a given distance. The pulley-block is made up of two vertical plates, which are connected by a belt. The belt is usually made of a strong material, such as steel, so that it can handle the weight of the material being raised or lowered. The belt is wrapped around a pulley at one end, and the other end of the belt is attached to the object being raised or lowered. When the belt is pulled, the pulley will rotate, which will cause the object being raised or lowered to move a given distance.
