In response to In response to 38


          

Hi Ralph:
You guessed correctly. The image in the Shipbuilder reprint is the same one as in Engineering. Bill Sauder contacted me about it.
The two things I had been puzzled about may be becoming more clear:

1. The absence of a foot brake bar. I'm thinking that they may have used a hand brake wheel which would tighten the brake drum bands on the brake drum as seen in the photo below. This wheel may not have been kept rigged but was inserted in a socket when necessary.

2. The absence of a motor on/off switch and speed controller as seen on the motor end of the Sunderland Forge winches. I think that like them the handle was not always rigged but was inserted when operations were to begin. Where exactly it was inserted is a little unclear as the motor set-ups seem to vary quite a lot on the Chambers, Scott winches.
Regards,
Bob Read
