    Hi again, my workshop winch has one micro switch on it and stopsthe motor when the cable hook hits the top.
    I would like to put one on to stop the motor when the hook gets to the lowest level.
    Can anyone help, I have winch.png attached the control drawings.

    I take it the broken red lead betwixt # 9 & 11 on your drawing is the upper limit switch ??

    You would have to have something on the cable that would..........Hmmmmmmmm -- lemme kick that one around a bit........:rolleyes:

    How high off the deck is it hung, how much unused cable is on the spool, and diameter of the spool.

    It is doable, just would take some minor modification...
