Re: Making a Roller Fairlead
Well, I guess you could make one out of angle iron, or plate, grade 8 bolts or shafting, and some kind of steel roller, maybe some bushings.... There's not much to a roller fairlead.
But, really, it's probably not worth it. I think you can buy a roller fairlead from any of the major winch companies, and they're really not that much.
If it were me, I would spend your fabrication talents and time on something like a rear tire carrier, where you can save the big $$$$$$.
Just my opinion,
