You can try these suppliers - they have a range of winches in different sizes, scales & types

MobileMarineModels.com
MarksModelBits.com

or you can trawl through the various supplier pages on CornwallModelBoats.co.uk

Or you can make it yourself.  A non-working winch is relatively easy to construct in styrene, or somewhat more difficult in brass.  A working winch can also be built in brass if you prefer.  I don't know of anyone offering a kit for a working winch.

Model Slipways have a good looking double drum waterfall winch in white metal, 1:50 (or 1:48) scale, as part of their AZIZ kit.  You could email them and see if they will sell you just the winch - email ModelSlipway@gmail.com.
