Simple Testing Devices
« on: June 14, 2019, 03:22:58 AM »
Having read through the extent of Seaworthy's concern with the two versions of the double sheet bend (along with all of the relevant insight), I was very interested to learn more about devising an inexpensive and straightforward way of testing knots.  Xarax went into some detail concerning the use of a  long ram hydraulic bottle jack with pulleys mounted on either side.  I must confess that I am having difficulty envisioning exactly what he is describing. 

Does anyone have a photo or a link to such a device?  Or perhaps something along the same line?
