    Default Homemade port a wrap

    I got off work early today and decided I would build a new port a wrap instead of buy one. The materials only cost $15, way cheaper than buying one. I have some more polishing to do on it and then I will hit it with a little paint.

    One of the best things that ever happened to me was after I graduated high school my dad made me apply for a job at a fabrication shop. I didn't figure I would ever get the job but I did. Spent one year working there, learned a lot and made some really cool stuff. I never did learn to weld really well but I did good enough to get by.

    Lol it isn't light. Same size winch as a harken 44 or 46, i can't remember exactly. Dramatically cheaper, non self tailing, which i might add a spring loaded roller to lock the rope against the capstan. I also bought the grcs drill bit thing, which i was furious when i found out its just a 3/4" ratchet. Could have saved the $50 or whatever i payed for it lol. I have a few more winches i bought too, so i might have to be like oprah on my jobs: "you get a winch, and you get a winch, and you..." lol
