Rickety Wrecked Son!
OK this should be my last update. I finally got a Hobart welding cable lug for 5/16" stud and pressed it on the end of the cable. I also found a pin to put in my hook. So this evening I put the cable on the drum. It actually flipped around and hit me in the face, gave me a slightly bloody nose and busted lip but I got it done. When I put the cable on I had half a quart of 5W-20 leftover from my Civic's oil change. So I soaked a rag and oiled the cable with it as I spooled it in. Looks great and I can't wait to use it.
