Manilla a sort of grass is best for hauling since it will stretch before breaking unlike hemp growing banned most places, makes excellent rope etc. Generally synthetic ropes should not be used with a powered capstan since the heat generated whilst it is slipping can melt the rope and damage it. The ONLY disadvantage if the winch is that the engine must be running to use it. The advantages to a capstan: Light weight. Quite easy to use. Direct drive, no drain on the electrical system.

Precise control of the load and line speed - in or out. You can use it to cook see below. The disadvantages: Difficult to use if rope is wet or frozen. Must be engaged with the engine stationary, though it can be disengaged while running.

Line pull limited to 3, on some versions, though this can be almost doubled with a snatch block. There are two shear pins on mine; one is part of the drive shaft to the winch from the starter dog, one is part of the capstan itself. They are not too difficult to replace, so long as you get the outer and inner parts of the shaft which the pins connect to operate the winch lined up, and so long as you can get at the underneath of the winch ie just in front of the front chassis cross member.

I found it helpful to line up the holes using a steel version of the shear pin which I made up. If you make such a pin, it will also allow you to hand crank the engine without risking breaking the shear pin; it should not be used for winching of course :- Sheer Pins: You should be able to quite happily winch 1.

The only times I broke a shear pin was either hand cranking before I made the steel pin, or when attempting to bash the pin in before the holes were lined up. The Fairey capstan winch, if used with a steel shear pin has a load capacity of 10 Pounds! Use: Take 3 turns upwards round the capstan and tail the rope from the side, far enough away in case anything lets go. When in use with proper rope, you will find that the the turning of the drum as you tail the winch will cause the turns of rope to ride up.

The further up the drum the rope goes, the steeper the taper becomes, so the top turns of rope bind tighter onto the lower ones. This reduces the force you need to put in tailing.

Most capstans on ships have a limit to the torque they can generate, either because of the motor power if electric or steam, or a pressure relief if hydraulic. The Land-Rover one has, as far as I can remember, a shear pin. Rather terminal! One person wrote: "I did find it rather tricky to operate the winch. It was very easy to melt the rope, easy to get one turn overrunning another and virtually impossible to slip the rope on the capstan when loaded.

The rather flimsy nature of the engage mechanism on the Aeroparts winch was also a bit of a problem. All this led to some quite exciting moments, but that may not be what you had in mind :- " Contributors:.

A basic capstan winch comprises a vertical drum geared so it will only turn one way always clockwise on a sailboat. When you wrap the line around the drum again, clockwise two or three times, you can more easily control the forceful pull of the sail. The friction of the wraps helps prevent the line being pulled away from you. If you need more power to sheet in a sail in a breeze, a a fitting on top of the drum allows you to insert a crank for extra leverage. There are more elaborate capstan winches with two speeds, self-tailing mechanisms—and electrically powered winches that eliminate the need for manual cranking. For many years, a capstan winch could also be ordered as a factory option on Land Rovers and a few other vehicles. A capstan winch at LR-Winches.
