I found a hand winch, 12" of 2" sq bar stock and this neat mandrel.
At first I was thinking that was factory made but now I'm not so sure.
If you look real close the body look like part of an old car/truck starter.
You can see the screws that would hold the winding in. But the end
covers are both matching covers. Some one built a chuck out of an
old gear. The work that was put into the chuck is an extreme amount
of effort so maybe someone did make the whole thing. I thought this
would make a good jackshaft for something and I'm always looking
for things to build.
