Worn capstan: here’s how to recover it

What is the capstan? This is a question you may have heard before but are unsure of the answer. Capstan is a type of winch used for pulling heavy objects. It has two main parts: the capstan itself and the cable.

The capstan is attached to the object to be moved and the cable is pulled to move it. The capstan can be used for a variety of purposes including moving boats, lifting heavy objects and so much more!

How the capstan works

The capstan consists of two main parts: the winch and the cable. The capstan is a cylinder with grooves on its surface. The cable is wrapped around the capstan and passes through the grooves.

When the capstan turns, the cable wraps around it. This action causes the object to be pulled. The capstan can be turned by hand or with a motor.

The capstan is a very versatile tool and can be used for many different purposes. Its most common use is to move boats, but it can also be used to lift heavy objects, pull vehicles and so much more!

How to best use capstans

If your capstan starts to show signs of wear, don’t worry! There are some things you can do to extend its life. First, make sure the capstan is lubricated. This will help you reduce friction and prevent the capstan from wearing out prematurely.

Secondly, avoid using the capstan in salt water. Salt water is very corrosive and damages the capstan over time. If you have to use the capstan in salt water, be sure to rinse it with fresh water as soon as possible.
