Mike,
Might I respectfully suggest that you try something like, "Could you put some photos up so we can better understand?"
It just takes a little old fashioned consideration and politeness to bring this forum back to what I perceive as its original intent of respectful knowledge sharing. Yes, I'll post some photos but my agenda is full for the next couple of days so please be patient.


If you notice the wink and smiley face after my comment, it's quite evident that I was being jokeful in my comment.  In almost all other forums that I am a member of, there is even an emoticon with the exact phrase I used.  I meant no disrespect.

Attempts to post additional photos are failing??? Will try again later. Any ideas?

Here's the syntax I'm using with square brackets replaced with braces so that it will display in the post.

Oh no, you cannot link from the Internet to a local file on your system. The image must be posted to the web before the image tags can be used. If it is not on an accessible webserver somewhere, we cannot see it in here.

So if the image first is posted somewhere else on the web or in another post in the forum, <img>http://somewebsite/images/myimage.jpg</img> (with relevant brackets) can be used to make that image appear directly in the post. Otherwise, the image will have to be posted from your computer to the site by the "Additional Options" dialog under the editing frame.

Up to four images may be posted in the same post by clicking "More Attachments".

Who needs tie wraps (zip-ties, cable ties... what ever you call them in your part of the world) when you have the buntline hitch?

This photo demonstrates how a straight buntline hitch without a locking half hitch holds, even with a very strong pull. I think you can see my fingers turning white from the strain.

Even so, a locking hitch is always a good idea for insurance.
