Topic: One on one swap - For Brandon

It has to start somewhere.........

So far ive managed to cut the handle - and given it a lot of thoughts - feeling a bit nervous and suffering from performance anxiety.

6 mm stainless steel handle - sanded down at the transition. I did not use my normal black steel rebar - it is after all a project with a lot of attention - so i better behave. For that reason i have also bought the best quality german engineered electrical tape for the transition :-)

More to follow - soon

Nice, here we go!

Just use the e-tape to create all the layers and stick an overlay on - ta-da, no need for binding!

Re: One on one swap - For Brandon

Actually the overlay is put in hot glue :-)

Hmmmm i really hope that sick danish humor is worldwide understood - otherway my days in this group seems to be numbered :-)

ahaha I can't wait to see how this goes! And instead of e tape, why not just use a paper core wink

Personally if you have high quality tape you can get rid of the paracord all together big_smile

Electrical tape makes the best whips, I think we all know this. Anybody who doesn't use it is a chump...lol

But it has to be the high quality engineered German e-tape. It's about $100 more per roll but well worth it.
Nothing else will hold up as well, especially the Chinese tape.
Avoid that like the plague.

Re: One on one swap - For Brandon

I refuse to pay less than $300 per roll for electrical tape

Re: One on one swap - For Brandon

Morten keep that humor coming !  Good start

Inch by inch.

Re: One on one swap - For Brandon

Speaking of start, my damn snowblower won't. Any advice? Maybe some highly precise application of the German made electrical tape? I just can't figure it out.

Jesse, if it's like a lawnmower check the plug and make sure the air cleaner is not dirty.
Then it might be just old gas.

Re: One on one swap - For Brandon

That was a serious question actually. The spark plug was bad. Got it replaced and it fired right up. Stupid machines...I love and hate them.

Re: One on one swap - For Brandon

Jesse, I'm glad you got it running.
I have never even seen one in person.

It's a running story in the family when people would ask my Father how he came to be here in the Rio Grade Valley.
He said that he started walking south holding a snow shovel and when someone asked him what it was, he new it was far enough. And here we are.
