I was in the need of references for a cargo elevator, sort like the one in the beginning of Hellboy, just bigger, been trying to figure out how they would actually work, but I have a hard time find references, not knowing the best search terms.
Either way, then I was thinking, how come we don't have a reference thread for just these kind of requests, not that people should supply with pictures, but at least help finding good places to find them, or terms to help finding them. And having them all in one thread would make it easier to find them.
We have a lot of different people, who knows different things about different areas, and might know the right words for certain things. Like someone who had worked at a factory might know brands for forklifts etc.
Either way, I will start out with my request for help. I'm looking for large cargo lifts, that isn't attached by wires, but is attached to the wall. Kinda like the large one from the first Hulk and these shots from Hellboy:
