FROM: SAM EFFINGER SIET UTILITIES
SUBJECT: Electric winch(son of)
I am still assembling the parts for my winch...there were lots of questions.
Therefore I plan to make a small write up along with pictures and put
on the MVDXCC web page.
Again please wait until this thing is up and working before you invest
money.There is a winch already made from a company called Super winch
and I ordered one of them also, the price was $411 and it looks like it
will work. I will try to evaluate these two winches and make a posting.
There are more folks qualified to evaluate this than me but I want one
so I will try to share any knowledge or thoughts I gain.
As a side note I ordered my 4130 mast from a local outfit in St. Louis
called Shiparo steel. I you call them ask for Stan Shiparo and tell
Sam said call...the price was $9/foot. I am having 2 pieces 24 foot long
galvanized for $75.
The phone no for Shiparo is 1-314-382-7000...
Again I am no expert on winches ( well maybe I have spent some time with
winches of another kind) so if you have additional ideas let me know...
as a fellow said "I love my life and I love my wife" hey me too..cu
Merry Christmas from my family to yours
