  4. Living in Cumbria... If I didn't work in the rain I'd not make any money
  5. Hi Steve, sorry I took forever to reply... I never get messages on here so didn't check! I'm defo up for a splice session... I'm no master but happy to muddle on through with a few of us. Hows tricks bro?

  6. Whether a rope is ce marked or not has no bearing on the Loler inspection does it? There is no ce on the knots we tie either. This is a really interesting thread because I find quite a lot of differing opinion from one inspector to the next on spliced rope.... Is this down to a need for clearer guide lines for inspectors or the inspector not being a splicer or some thing similar?
