Hi
Thanks for the explaining, I understand the wording you use. I love splicing ( hemp )

Here is another link , only for the "idea" or protection.

There is the Machovec site which has splicing methods too.

Cheers

I am impressed at how effectively you come up with these!

However, if you look, this last one is the same as New England Rope's.  His finish is clever, but with heat shrinkable tubing "protection" at the chafe point.  :P  I'm sorry, and please don't take this personally (I'm not one to "shoot the messenger"), but this is (to me) more of an illustration of why I want to do the ABOK# 2858 version!  (Hint: That heatshrink (even if you wisely use Clear) will hold water -- which makes for stinky mildew at best, rotten cordage and a lost anchor at worst.  Which begs the question: Which is worse, rotting or rubbing?)

But don't let me dissuade you!!!  Keep it up!!  Evaluating alternatives is what Jimbos do best!  And thank you for pitching in!!

(
And if you do this splice, please do:
  • switch to CLEAR heatshrink,
  • slush the strands under the heatshrink with thick, water-displacing goo,
  • shrink the heatshrink with enough heat, and
  • watch that splice[/b] in service!  Inspect, inspect, inspect!!
)
Thank you all, for everything.  As of 6/6/6, I have changed my password to a random string (which I forgot), thereby assuring that anyone posting as "Jimbo" in the future will NOT be me.  Good luck!!!

Hi Jimbo,
Yes I had realized it was the same as before but I was intrigued by the "protection".
Your remarks are enlighthening : from the frying pan into the fire!
Everywhere they insisted : inspect to the  power "as much as you want" .
I went foraging on my HD for you and here a miscellany of links : some quite good, some quite ordinary : you will have to sift. ( I verified the validity of each link prior to sending, some had to be "put right" )
