DIY Winch Retrievers - Free

Hi Fliers,

Our club has a couple of home made winch retrievers that we affectionately call, "high speed frying pan" retrievers. That is because the pick up spools are made from non-stick aluminum pans.

These were made from plans that are posted out there somewhere. Can't recall where.

Anyway, we would like to donate these to anyone who thinks they can use them. They work well and retrieve pretty fast.

They are provided "as is." You will need you to get your own hand switch, make up a line guide, and put on new line.

They were last tested last fall and worked fine. A little lubrication and a coat of paint and they will look like new.

I will crate and ship them at buyers expense. Or they can be picked up local for no cost.

LMK if interested. We have two units available.

To everyone who inquired:

1st unit was taken local.

2nd unit turned out to not be functional and will be scrapped.

Thanks for looking.
