Re: Low buck projects- Let's see 'em!
Needed a better way to raise and lower the mast on my Mac 22. I didn't want to drop a few hundred on an actual mast raising system. So, I just made one. Works great. Got to use it today.
Made from a heavy gauge fence post, winch, 1/8" cable, hook, a pulley, and a length of water hose just big enough to get on the foot of it. Total cost was $30. Maybe. I bought the winch used for $5. Post was $8, cable hook, and everything else was maybe $10-15.
Works great. and makes raising and lowering the mast crazy easy.
