The Witch Winch:Building a Practical Gearbox

By Benjamin Kidd

ENGR-162/12 - Benjamin W. Kidd


What is a gearbox
What is a Gearbox?

  • A box of gears

  • More specifically, an assembly to which a prime mover (such as a motor, gasoline engine, etc) is mounted to, and interconnects with gears for the purposes of speed and torque alterations (See Basic Practical Mechanics presentation)

ENGR-162/12 - Benjamin W. Kidd


What is a winch
What is a Winch?

  • A device used to wind a rope or cable for lifting or pulling.

It is recommended to purchase a project box instead of building one.

Bottle Cap

Coat Hanger

Building the gearbox the pinion
Building the Gearbox: The Pinion

  • Mount the pinion gear to the motor shaft – In the case of the DCM-216 and GR-5, the motor shaft must be built up to fit snugly with the gear.

ENGR-162/12 - Benjamin W. Kidd


Attaching the pinion
Attaching the pinion

  • Epoxy the pinion gear to the motor (Use epoxy. Glue gun and super glue may not hold.)

ENGR-162/12 - Benjamin W. Kidd


The gearbox
The Gearbox

  • Mount the motor to the Gearbox using the front mounting screws.

Driven gear mounting
Driven Gear Mounting

  • Use same procedure with driven gear as pinion – mount to coat hanger (or other material suitable to be used as a shaft.)

Driven Gear Mounting

  • Spindle added for “Winch” on driven gear shaft.

How fast does it wind a string
How fast does it wind a string?

  • To calculate, we need to know the number of times the winch shaft turns per unit time, and the circumference of the winch.

ENGR-162/12 - Benjamin W. Kidd


Calculating shaft speed
Calculating Shaft Speed

  • Assumptions

    • Motor RPM = 6000 RPM

    • Gearing Ratio 1:5 (pinion:gear)

ENGR-162/12 - Benjamin W. Kidd


Calculating winding time
Calculating Winding Time

  • Need Diameter of Winch Spindle

    • d = 3/8”

  • Find circumference

  • Now calculate winding time
