Unknown Winches

I just picked up a pair of Telo self tailing winches model 280 and after some googling, I found that they were made by Woolsey Manufacturing in the 70's. Does anyone have these on their boat and if so, how are they disassembled?
Any manuals etc...they look like nice winches.
Thanks

Re: Unknown Wenches

if you post some picts that would help in judging if they are nice wenches... Somehow I have never had a good wench on board, but I have heard they exist...

As for WINCHES.... I am not familiar with the telo winches...

Best if luck..

Re: Unknown Wenches

If y'wanna sell either or both of those wenches, I might be interested. Is 280 their weight (conbined I hope) and are they self-tailing?

Re: Unknown Wenches

Wenches made in the 70s are the best, as far as I'm concerned. I can help you disassemble them if you're never done this before.

Re: Unknown Wenches

Rather than dis-assembly I would recommend polishing and then plugging any holes ... If done properly they should remain useful for years to come

Re: Unknown Wenches

As for winches, most have a snap ring on top holding a plate/washer, witch holds the capstan.

Re: Unknown Wenches

Don't however forget to do some pre-polishing before you plug any holes or they may become more difficult to use going forward. Y'know, there are newer wenches that recently came on the market that go both ways. Think about that.

I believe these are one speed models?

Remember- don't use too much lubricant, or repeated slippage could occur!

Re: Unknown Wenches

The older they get, the more lubricant is required
