EDIT: 08/21/2021 I'm not sure my Emergency cable is going to work. There may not be enough cable left to get the top all the way up before the splice reaches the winch. I'm rethinking the whole idea trying to find a way to make it work.I've got the 1/2" in drive DeWalt cordless drill (DCD 780). I'm not sure it'll have enough torque, but we'll see.
I saw your post about the emergency cable extension and I'd love to be able to make one. I've avoided working with wire cables because I don't have a swaging tool to crimp those ferrules. Do you think it would be secure enough using just the screw-on cable clamps?
