    Re: In Search of Winch Handle

    Thanks for all replies.

    I understand there's lots for sale via internet but thought a Sniffer member may have one for sale....win/win.

    As for making one, I could do that but why re-invent the wheel (handle) when so many for sale.

    Again, thx gang.

    When I first read this my mind pictured the trailer winch. I was shaking my head that someone would take the time and trouble to filch the handle off of a boat trailer winch. Then, the light came on and I realized you were talking about a winch handle! Oh boy, a senior moment.

    As my dad use to tell me, use your ingenuity Ken. Get a bolt like in the pic. Our a lock nut and washer on the inside and on the outside. You have a winch handle.
