      A Few Simple Rules   05/22/2017

      Sailing Anarchy is a very lightly moderated site. This is by design, to afford a more free atmosphere for discussion. There are plenty of sailing forums you can go to where swearing isn't allowed, confrontation is squelched and, and you can have a moderator finger-wag at you for your attitude. SA tries to avoid that and allow for more adult behavior without moderators editing your posts and whacking knuckles with rulers. We don't have a long list of published "thou shalt nots" either, and this is by design. Too many absolute rules paints us into too many corners. So check the Terms of Service - there IS language there about certain types of behavior that is not permitted. We interpret that lightly and permit a lot of latitude, but we DO reserve the right to take action when something is too extreme to tolerate (too racist, graphic, violent, misogynistic, etc.). Yes, that is subjective, but it allows us discretion. Avoiding a laundry list of rules allows for freedom; don't abuse it. However there ARE a few basic rules that will earn you a suspension, and apparently a brief refresher is in order. 1) Allegations of pedophilia - there is no tolerance for this. So if you make allegations, jokes, innuendo or suggestions about child molestation, child pornography, abuse or inappropriate behavior with minors etc. about someone on this board you will get a time out. This is pretty much automatic; this behavior can have real world effect and is not acceptable. Obviously the subject is not banned when discussion of it is apropos, e.g. talking about an item in the news for instance. But allegations or references directed at or about another poster is verboten. 2) Outing people - providing real world identifiable information about users on the forums who prefer to remain anonymous. Yes, some of us post with our real names - not a problem to use them. However many do NOT, and if you find out someone's name keep it to yourself, first or last. This also goes for other identifying information too - employer information etc. You don't need too many pieces of data to figure out who someone really is these days. Depending on severity you might get anything from a scolding to a suspension - so don't do it. I know it can be confusing sometimes for newcomers, as SA has been around almost twenty years and there are some people that throw their real names around and their current Display Name may not match the name they have out in the public. But if in doubt, you don't want to accidentally out some one so use caution, even if it's a personal friend of yours in real life. 3) Posting While Suspended - If you've earned a timeout (these are fairly rare and hard to get), please observe the suspension. If you create a new account (a "Sock Puppet") and return to the forums to post with it before your suspension is up you WILL get more time added to your original suspension and lose your Socks. This behavior may result a permanent ban, since it shows you have zero respect for the few rules we have and the moderating team that is tasked with supporting them. Check the Terms of Service you agreed to; they apply to the individual agreeing, not the account you created, so don't try to Sea Lawyer us if you get caught. Just don't do it. Those are the three that will almost certainly get you into some trouble. IF YOU SEE SOMEONE DO ONE OF THESE THINGS, please do the following: Refrain from quoting the offending text, it makes the thread cleanup a pain in the rear Press the Report button; it is by far the best way to notify Admins as we will get e-mails. Calling out for Admins in the middle of threads, sending us PM's, etc. - there is no guarantee we will get those in a timely fashion. There are multiple Moderators in multiple time zones around the world, and anyone one of us can handle the Report and all of us will be notified about it. But if you PM one Mod directly and he's off line, the problem will get dealt with much more slowly. Other behaviors that you might want to think twice before doing include: Intentionally disrupting threads and discussions repeatedly. Off topic/content free trolling in threads to disrupt dialog Stalking users around the forums with the intent to disrupt content and discussion Repeated posting of overly graphic or scatological porn content. There are plenty web sites for you to get your freak on, don't do it here. And a brief note to Newbies... No, we will not ban people or censor them for dropping F-bombs on you, using foul language, etc. so please don't report it when one of our members gives you a greeting you may find shocking. We do our best not to censor content here and playing swearword police is not in our job descriptions. Sailing Anarchy is more like a bar than a classroom, so handle it like you would meeting someone a little coarse - don't look for the teacher. Thanks.

Winch Repair

17 posts in this topic

I am working with old barrent winches I have a pair of 32 s/t that have some significant ware on the slots the Paws drop into. I serviced the winches over the weekend. (One is so bad the paw is no longer retained in the slot, when the winch is apart. ) What is the best way to fix this problem? do we have a shop braze more brass on to the slot and re-cut it? can we cut new paw slots at 90 degrees to the old slots? (we have access to a machine shop to do the work, but really don't want to have to cut a new cog/with paw slots if we don't have to) Since the season starts in just over six weeks, i have some time to get this fixed, but I need some advice on the best way to get this done.

Don't bother filling in the old slots. You are better to just cut new slots into the winches. They don't need to be at 90 degrees to the old slots, so long as they are directly opposite to each other. Give yourself lots of space in case you screw up the first and second time. (I speak from experience).

 

You really do need to be VERY careful in the size and position of the new slots. It is likely that your old winch is not perfectly round, so it takes some work to get it right. Don't rush. Take a lot of time and measurements to make sure they are exactly where you want them. You need a precise milling machine to measure exactly.

Considering that the pawls are the only thing that keeps the winch from spinning backwards, I would recommend you replace the winch.

 

We tried doing a similar thing on a pair of 22's, and the voids in the casting were too bad to try and make an effective and reliable repair.

Ish,

 

Two really is the customary number for breasts ... or tits as you like to call them.

I like two. I was speaking in terms of more visibility, not more quantity. Breasts sounds so formal.

Get some tube (brass, stainless etc.) with an id that matches the final pawl pivot hole id. Then with a milling machine, center a bit (which measures a few thousandths under the od of the tube you've procured) over the old pawl slot hole. Bore to full depth. press in sections of tube. Personally to open up the slots for the pawl arm i then chuck and true the drum in a lathe and remove the sleeve where it protrudes into the drum. Not sure if this makes sense as ive written it but my boats got 16 barients of various flavors and ive rebuilt the majority of them. If you can afford it, from a safety standpoint best to replace the winch...

Can you post a picture of your winch opened up?

I will post a picture when I have the part re-cut and ready to go back in the winch and a picture of the winch as i am putting it back together. (I re-assembled it, sans the part being worked on, to keep the parts in the right positions so I can put it back together without having to open up the other winch to see how it goes back together.)

Can you post a picture of your winch opened up?

Here you can see the original pawl slots and my first and second failed attempts at cutting new slots. I got it right the third time.

On the second winch I got it right the first time. Both of these winches have worked perfectly for 4 years since the repair.

Go for it!

There's something about bilateral symmetry that just works.

 

 

Nice job, Foolish. I never would have thunk of that.

Here is a picture of the repair we made! It looks pretty good.

Nice job. The old slots did not look all that worn (at least compared to a couple of winches on my boat).
