Great job Mark, thank you.
Does seem to be a better job of testing than I can do.
What is your test set up and would share a picture of your rig?
If I can, I would like to duplicate it.

Thanks Scott,

I own a digital 5 ton load cell (brand 'Dynafor') - and so had a means to measure the force I was applying.
I used a 2 ton 'lever hoist' (basically a ratcheting chain block) - which is what I used to apply force.

I ran out of time today but, I am having another crack tomorrow where I will ramp up the force to 8kN and maybe a bit higher.

Will snap a few pics for you...

Mark

I deleted and moved my knot test report to 'Knotting concepts and explorations'.
