Re: One on one swap - For Brandon

Well since Ron insists on us being serious - ive better get started.

I started laying out the core - which is 1/4 inch slinker cord filled with BB for a foot - then inside is tied a 3/16" slinkercord filled with 3 layers of 550 paracord of variating lengths.

on the pic below i have tried to show how it will end

made a small notch in the 6mm stainless steel handle - the whole area where the core is attached is grinded with taper

4 layers of cord ready to be bound into the slinkercord

Core ready to be filled with a foot of BB - the constricters knot on the core holds the 4 layers of cord

filling in BB - brass tube makes it quick and easy

BB filled in - core attached to handle - pls note that the bb filled portion has a smaller diameter than the rest of the core.

A bolster of Canadian made cloth hockey tape is added as bolster for two reasons. One to get the diameter even - second - to prevent the BB to shift around when i start binding.

First binding with artificial sinew (ran out of the german engineered Etape)

Thanks for posting your progress Morten.

You are welcome Ron - will go and cut some cord for the first belly now

Re: One on one swap - For Brandon

math done on strand lengths - starting first belly.

I know its a messy start - and that square starts seems to be the hit these days. But i always make the handle 5-6 cm too long so i can mount it in the vice - and since i have to cut anyway - i dont want to spen the time on nice square starts

Very neat work, Morten!

Re: One on one swap - For Brandon

Morten , excell-ent notes.
When I want to check my notes I have to hire an interpreter from the U.N. .
But they usually give up after a couple of days. smile
Our intelligence agencies want to use it for coded messages.
What's the point if no one can read them.... no one.

Re: One on one swap - For Brandon

Oooh this is looking cool! Your notes are very nicely printed up~ Mine's all on an excel sheet, since I can then change things on the fly, but I love the look of your notes XD
Also, nice core, how did you manage to put 2 550 strands within a third?

Give a man a fire and he's warm for the day. But set fire to him and he's warm for the rest of his life.

its a ungutted going all the way through - pulled into a gutted - then pulled into the yellow - the fancy colored chinese bought often have a slightly larger diameter so it goes pretty easy


And for the rest - seems like handwriting skills it not a whipmaker trade

33

Re: One on one swap - For Brandon

Ohhh I see! Awesome can't wait to play with your whip~

Re: One on one swap - For Brandon

Nice start!

Very scientific notes. I see you've bumped into the same problem of terminology. We just have to use some of the English language terms, but then explaining something to your friends becomes very silly big_smile

I expect that people here can at least read Danish - remember - its a language used by at least 5 million people worldwide

Here after progressive binding

the binding on the second belly will be shorter - Brandon likes a fast forming loop - so try to accomodate his wishes

38

Re: One on one swap - For Brandon

Morten, that's a good example of why to bind a whip and what it does for a whip.
Looks like a really good job.

Re: One on one swap - For Brandon

Thx Ron - its one of the thing i picked up here in the group - the importance of the binding and how you can make the caracteristics of the whip with the binding.

Haveto say that my short membership here has learned me a lot more than youtube videos over the rest of my whipmaking career (short as it is)

Thank you all for sharing your knowledge - and looking forward to improve my skills. I especially look forward to a constructive critisism from Brandon since he will be the first "real whip guy" to try one of mine.

Re: One on one swap - For Brandon

Morten, that looks really nice!
