Re: horizon express windlass slipping

When mine slipped, I tore it down and had a machine shop re-knurl the concave cone so that the clutch would bite. I had to do this after all of the clutch adjustment had been "used up". This repair lasted for many years.

Good luck,

Doesn't it have a big nut on the right side that you can turn to tighten the clutch?
