Re: Windlass identification old Maramu 1989 #261


Hi Ross,

I have a 1982 Lofrans windless and periodically it functions inconsistently.  My solution has been to clean corrosion off the armature.  If the armature is dark I dress it with graphite paper until it is nice and shiney.  I can't address your concern about the loose brushes but you might try sleeving them with strips of aluminum cut from a soda can (I love a McGiver approach).
