Re: Worn holes for the Winch Pawls

Another possibilty. Have a local machine shop open the holes slightly by simply plunging in a slightly larger end mill. Then find a wire EDM shop (or eMachine.com) to have a pair of slightly oversized pawls made. They can cut hardened stainless to very precise dimensions using that process.
