new to the boards, but been lurking for quite some time.
im decently inclined and am curious about building one of these......from what i can see as long as the main components are right (motor, spool, chain, centrifugal clutch) the design obviously varies from one machine to another.
has anyone recently built one? ive been able to track down some pictures of one build only. every other "write up" i have found is so old that the pictures cannot be viewed any longer. im really trying to weigh the pros and cons of building one vs buying one of the ones that ridiculous wenches makes....
anyone have any experience with the skim specific one?
thanks in advance for any help...searched the forum and basically only found a couple old ones for sale and a couple of brief discussions around how amazing they are.
