I know this is not exactly machining related, but I've searched everywhere I can think of and found out everything you ever wanted to know about wire rope but were afraid to ask.... except how to spool it onto a winch drum.

I have 350 feet of 5/8" rotation resistant hoist line that I need to put on a hoist drum, but I don't know if or how to start winding the line on the drum under tension so the top layers don't jam or dammage the initial layer or layers of line.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

Steve
