In a barn, in a home workshop or in a garage, you might need a thing like a winch or a hoist. In the store, these devices are not sold often, besides they stand decent.
Make a winch itself is not so difficult and much less costly.
You will need
- - rolled metal-
- - rope-
- - Channel-
- - pulley-
- - block-
- - the nut-
- - Threaded stud.
First of all, for the manufacture of the winch isTo take care of buying in a store or on a flea market such things as a stud with a thread. They are found up to 2m long, this is exactly what you need to buy, because the longer the thread will be - the higher you can lift the load, in this case, its working stroke will be approximately 180cm. The support or the frame of the winch can be made from oak beams, but it is preferable to make it from the channel or metal profile. Also the support can be welded from metal.
So, make a frame in the form of the letter "P"Drill holes in the lateral sides for bearings, into which the ends of the threaded stud will be inserted. To the rectangular plate with a coaxial height for the pin, weld from both sides along the nut, this knot will be a pulling nut. It should drill a hole under the cable, the thickness of it must be consistent with the purposes for which you are making Winch.
Think about where the ceiling will beBe your winch: it will depend on which side the drive is located, on which side the repaired car assembly will go. With a certain side of you weld a corner, on which attach the block under the cable. On the other hand there will be a pulley. To its inner diameter, bore one of the ends of the hairpin.
It should be noted that you can use asterisksInstead of pulleys, using a looped chain for manual traction, since the design of this winch is designed to lift heavy enough weights. But if you prefer an electric drive, then for this purpose you can use a cheap electric drill, power up to 500W. Then you need to put a pulley on Winch And install the second pulley on the floor.
And a few words about the assembly of the structure. Do not save on the power and the amount of fastening the winch to the ceiling. Use long anchor bolts, if on the ceiling of your room there are iron beams overlap, point weld the design to one of them, additionally bolted. So you save both cargo from falling, and yourself from injuries.
