The B1200 and similar winches are still made by Dutton-Lainson,
and Grainger stocks parts for them. I just put new a new spool
on one ($28.00) and new "brake pads" in two ($9.00 for 4 pads).
Call Dutton-Lainson first to confirm part numbers, then
call Grainger to order them. Dutton-Lainson won't sell direct.
