Been doin a few more this week. The one problem i sometimes get is on the crossover at the end. I end up with a slight lump in the crossover. Nod did show us how to rectify this problem at the workshop but id like to know what im doin wrong to prevent it to start with?

i find milking the rope both directions and backing the splice up-pulling it out a bit and then milking again works to smoooth the lump away.

Well, if I was to inspect it I would want to pass it but according to the legislation, which has yet to catch up, I would have to fail it.

 

Still, with the good work that Nod is doing in training the likes of yourself and with people like yourself posting pictures of your work it may help to force the change that really needs to come.

 

Yeah,Nods doin an awesome job! You just get the feeling that he's banging his head alot of the time talking to plantpots who haven't got a clue!!

 

I shall deffinatly be goin to another one of his workshops though:thumbup1:
