Crank Wheel Drives Trailer Winch
John Eilers, Pana, Ill., got tired of cranking the winch on his implement trailer using the small hand crank so he decided to fit it with a big drive wheel.

††††He went to his iron pile and found some 1/2-in. rebar. He first made a small wheel connected to a drive axle, and then made a bigger wheel around the smaller one thatís fitted with a steering knob off a steering wheel. The weighted wheel makes turning the ratchet winch easy.
