Re: Lofrans Royal manual windlass

There is a specific gipsy for each size of chain. It is not universal.

Re: Lofrans Royal manual windlass

I looked at the engineering drawings from the manufactures website. Each chain size had a unique part number.

It's true, there's a specific chain gypsy for each size chain (I just purchased one of these). I've attached the chart below.

What URL did you find that description? I'm getting my info from the manual and this page: Horizontal Windlass - Royal

I have only used it with 3/8" BBB and the person I bought gave me a bunch of 5/16" I believe G4 but not too sure...they may not offer this gypsy any longer but the one on this unit will fit several types
