My splicing attempts

Recommended Posts

Well here's a couple of attempts from last night. The tachyon wasn't too bad. The girlfriend wasn't impressed when i nearly ripped the banista down though:biggrin:

Is the the first one a rope guide?

 

Cheers mate.

 

I was just playing with different size eyes. Might use it as a tool strop or a nice dog lead:001_tongue:

I have been toying with the idea of an eye bolt somewhere in the house, I have one outside but it's far too cold, just have to persuade the Mrs that it's vitally important.

lol, it might have a double purpose!

 

some good stuff in here, i particulary appreciated the treemagineers pdf.

 

I have always liked the look of eye to eye friction hitches, i have at the moment gone over to an 8mm cordage long prusick tachyon for the climbing, helical hitch for the friction, and this is a great hitch and simple, the knots (double fishermans is nice and compact but the option to learn splicing and make my own eye to eye hitch cords is too good to miss out on.

 

i may do this course myself, but does it certify you as a qualified splicer? sounds to me that it doesnt as a few mention not caring regards to loler?

 

has anyone used the mechanical advantage system described in the PDF doc from the treemagineers? have tried this set up in various forms once but this looks like a good set up?

Well other than eating,drinking and modern warfare2 ive managed to do a few more splices.

The scorch was lovely to splice and is by far the easiest 16strand ive done. Im getting alot better at the double braid now...i think:001_tongue:. Not very impressed with my bee line attempt but practice makes perfect! haha.

 

Cant wait to get back to work and start making some whoopies and loopies. Oh yeah and hopefully a new rope guide:thumbup1:.

 

If anyone else has some splices they've done then feel free to get your pics up:thumbup:
