    What to keep in-mind when splicing hitch-cords from 12-strand (Ice Tail)?

    OH- also hoping to learn name (or get linked to a tutorial) for that type of sliding-splice wherein you put the sling around the tree (choked on a spar) and are left w/ 2 foot-loops, have seen it pictured in magazines but not commonly, almost looks like a whoopie-sling that's got 2 adjustable...

    What to keep in-mind when splicing hitch-cords from 12-strand (Ice Tail)?

    tl;dr- I can splice double-braids and hollow-braids well, however I'm uncertain what to look-out-for when trying to splice two eyes onto 1 cord very close to one another (I can recall having some issue when making a ~4' long Blue Moon lanyard, and can recall some splicing-guide or thread making...

    1- Anyone test ABS on 'Ultrasling' config's? 2 - Can I use a prussik, on DB rope, as a 'catch'/choker for a block?

    Any insight would be appreciated here!! #1 -- The Ultrasling seems a neat configuration, am about to order some 3/4-->1" TEC to splice-up one for a #3 Elevation-Canda ring (10% wider than X-ring's XL/'Beast' ring :D ) but I've always understood that those 'pockets'(ie brummels) are not locks...

    Rust in carburetor?

    Good post thanks!! I'd been blowing-off my plugs/caps before filling oil/fuel but now whenever possible I simply hit it w/ brake-cleaner before opening (am I using brake-cleaner properly that way? My understanding is I use my carb-cleaner spray for anything that'd take oil, since it leaves an...

    Greenworks chainsaws

    Wow 80V? Saw them pimping their 60V lineup and was already thinking 60V will probably be the upper useful-limit for handheld power equipment like chainsaws, w/ 80V I have to imagine it'll be simple to run circles around any previous petrol gear (incl 200/201's) in the HP//weight category...

    Echo 2511t bumper spikes

    Yeah I imagine it'd be very very quick, and the difference between snug and "so tight it's going to crack" is wide enough that this shouldn't be much worry, I do wish I knew more about loctite/thread-locking but suspect you *don't* need the high-heat variety for locking those dogs into their...

    Comment by 'eyehearttrees' in media '20191225_102825.jpg'

    I think I'm going to make a thread as I'm just so stoked w/ this guy but am going to take him apart 1 last time 1st as my ignition-module-fix isn't as secure as I'd like so will be JB-welding it to the block and then 'packing' a fat rubber buffer/washer between the top-face of the module & the...

    Hoping for some answers on 12-strand splices (sliding-splices, brummels/tucks, double-heads etc, any help is very useful!!)

    Oh and w/ how loopies are stronger than whoopies......When looking at that "special whoopie" https://www.treestuff.com/rope-logic-double-head-beast-whoopie/ ^it makes me think that, w/ it being fully doubled-over looping, that this type of whoopie is probably either equal-to or superior-to a...

    Hoping for some answers on 12-strand splices (sliding-splices, brummels/tucks, double-heads etc, any help is very useful!!)

    1stly, am curious in-general whether you can make splice-crossovers longer than usual and, if so, is it simply a matter of sayingg "instead of the normal 15" fid for this diameter, I'll base everything off an 18" fid"? I'd made all my slings w/ 3/4 polydyne but found I kept using my 3-ringed...

    New Climber's First Rigging Gear

    Interesting Re frequency, would love to hear why as you seem very passionate so not being daily surprises me, hope it's 'chosen' (ie early half-retirement and not bad-back or something :/ ) I setup pretty similar to you & am often solo, gotta say I'm totally surprised you're into...

    Splicing Mercury Kernmantle climb line?

    Feel like I could do a 16-strand/solid-braid type of approach as seen here www.wesspur.com/images/pdfs/neropes-splice-guide.pdf (p.4) for 'single braid eye tuck splice', just 'divvying-out' my core&cover bundles and then doing a similar tuck-through back down the standing part of the rope...

    Splicing Mercury Kernmantle climb line?

    So in the magazines this is listed as sewn-termination only, am also finding zero pics online of eye-splices on this line - anyone have recommended-approaches? My experience is solely w/ double-braids, I used NErope's tutorial for attempt #1 and failed (Blue Moon), then used Samson's Class-I...

    [Tanaka re-build] Installing a chain-tensioner when yours is missing....[also anyone know idle/max RPM's for this?(TCS33EDPT)

    Also trying to come-up with a way to "beef-up" the handlebar-mount, it bothers me how small a bolt they use in the center of the lower handlebar-spring, not an area I wanna worry about strength!

    [Tanaka re-build] Installing a chain-tensioner when yours is missing....[also anyone know idle/max RPM's for this?(TCS33EDPT)

    Finished saw (before final tuning, chain-tensioner fix, proper pull-starter-handle install and, maybe, some light shaving/grinding and/or slotting of the chain-brake-guard-handle for visibility, if you look at the saw on the shelf below it you can see what I mean just a bit of area removed from...
