Default Ramsey Worm Winch Modification

This winch is part of a different thread called “Quick Attach Dump Box” in the Fabrication forum. I thought it interesting enough to hold its own here.

The objective here is to make a narrower spool and install it in my existing Ramsey RE8000 winch. The result will be much like the one shown below. The winch is to be used to tip a dump trailer. A narrow spool will package better on the 3” mast that it will be mounted on.

A technologically advanced society would teach their children how to start a fire by rubbing two sticks together before teaching them how to use a lighter.

Here I am turning one of the spool flanges. The part is being held to the jaws of the chuck by the axial force from the tailstock live center.

The chamfered ends of the hub and a gap created with welding rod both help to improve weld penetration and create a weld fillet.

To protect the rope, the weld is now being cut down to a somewhat smooth radius.

After cutting with a HSS tool.

Operations like this invite chatter. I mitigate the chatter by moving the tool from one side to the other in a series of little cuts.

Boring the center and cutting the dog clutch feature of the drive flange. Notice the opposite flange is not on yet.

Please bear with me as I try to rotate the pictures. Something changed on my iphone, so the pictures are not rotating like they used to. Have to find the workaround process.
