That's the same idea as the ones Cominco used to make for us. Except we used #10 wire and the screw was 3/8" thread.

Even duct tape can't fix stupid ... But it can muffle the sound. Attributed to Red Green

[QUOTE=Wolfram;693448]Here's another simpler version of the same thing:


I made a version of this one also (I must have a touch of OCD?) and I must say it is the least user-friendly of the three. I like the one on the left the best. It is the easiest to fab and the rotating crank can put a tremendous pull on the wire.

I think that the blue winching type makes the most sense too, and doesn't need a huge amount of excess wire.
