Right then... what next?

Recommended Posts

Heh heh heh... :D

 

Also, I have a length of Yale Blaze to splice as a lanyard and would really appreciate any hints & tips anyone may have. I'm all ears.

 

Thanks,

Matthew

Samson sliding guides.

 

Looks like you got all the kit. Maybe some crabs and an anchor point.

 

It has a 24 strand outer and is of a double braid construction.

 

Class 1 double braid splice would be the correct splice. Samson cordage download

 

Work out your fid length Measurement (also availabe from samson downloads) and off you go.

Thanks, Whalleyrange. I have some steel krabs and an anchor point to yank off - all I need now, I guess, is practice and experience... And to download a stack of splicing guides!

If you can get hold of the splicing manual by Samson its a nice little reference book.

I got one from ebay. Think it worked out to be about £20. I use it a lot to just check measurements etc. Give Nod at Treeworker a ring and see if he has some. I think he has stuff that isn't on the website sometimes.

You can download the individual guides from the Samson website for free.

 

Is this your first double braid?
