Rusty:
I have written and posted a lot of gin pole stuff here on the forum.
Including I think the label off of my blocks.
Please do a search and see what you can find, first.

I don't know of any books on gin poles but I do have some shots I scanned in out of other books.
I can't however post any of them due to copyright stuff.
So you'll have to read what I posted first.

Then if you have any more specific questions ask again in a new thread. And if I don't know the answer, I'll try and find it out for you.

Jim,  Thanks so much for your courteous and thorough answer.  I especially appreciate the drawings.  I plan to install a metal roof, with 1x material perpendicular to the rafters, so I will go with the 2 foot spacing, and install the two collars ties at the end of each gable.

Here's another great online reference--the military manual for rigging.  Loaded with all kinds of info:  covers ropes, knots, slings, pullleys, jin poles, reference tables, etc...
