Free Digging Winch
« on: October 11, 2020, 11:07:35 am »
Free to a good home

Made by Tom Proctor back in the eighties, (its been sat in our lock up since John Beck passed away).

Brilliant for digging shafts (John cleared many out using this bit of kit).

Its got a foot brake and ratchet and is good order.

Located in the Peak District

Free if anyone wants it we are moving lock up and would prefer not to have to find space in the new one

Will/Mark, I can collect it from Eyam and keep it at Flagg until Will's able to collect if it needs to move ASAP?

Well there are 3 buckets stacked to the right so I'd guess the windery bit is about 3 ft off the ground.

Oh aye didnt see that

AR, I live in Eyam at the moment so might be easier to just leave it outside my house if anyone has the time!

Aye that'd be good if that's okay! I stop being infectious tomorrow and I don't have a temperature (but do have a cough) if you want it picked up

Just keep the length of the winch away from anyone else!  :)
