Winch Mounted In Cradle:


Recommended Posts

I made the weldment to support the winch last fall and moved to another project. After setting it outside, I forgot about it. Needed something small to do last evening, I grabbed the frame, old winch mounting rails, new drill, and annular cutters. It takes about 1.5 minutes to bore a 1" diameter hole through 3/4" stock, and about the same for 1/2 holes through the same material. The holes are very close in dimension with only about .005 out of round. I could probably adjust the gibs on the drill to close this up also.

The new weldment fits to the frame of the truck and the headrack bolts to the horizontal flanges.

I like working with good tools.
