Creating a fixed eye in your Amsteel Blue Winch Line
How to create a fixed eye in 3/8 Amsteel Blue. This is for trail repairs
when you have limited access to tools and materials. The process is the
same for any diameter Amsteel Blue other than different bury lengths. 5/16
would be 13", 3/8 would be 16", 7/16 would be 18.5". I have tested this
extensively using half of each suggested bury length in a locked brummel
and all have held while the failure occurs in the line. I would suggest
replacing the whipping with the lock stich, or performing a locked brummel
when you return from your trip.
How to make a servo winch
I tried to make a video showing how to make a rc servo winch which would
show the whole process from beggining to end with no breaks in video,
sorry, video turned out a bit long, please fast forward through the boring
stuff. I used a MG946R 208oz servo which is the most popular servo used for
this application both for its strength and its low price. Most parts uses
in this video can be found in www.ckrccrawlers.com, although you might find
cheaper if you really shop around. Hope this video is helpfull, any
question please post on coment section so others can benefit from them as
well, thanks. PS: if you want to do away with POT or resistors all
together a small esc can be used to control winch, ebay has 10a esc for $10
shipped that can handle 2S and work great.
Simon Christie from 4wd TV checks out the benefits of running Winch Rope
over the typical steel cable found on many winches.
Winch Rope is stronger, safer and much easier to work with than steel
cable, and it is simple to retrofit an existing winch from steel to rope.
