Re: Adam Winrich style whip

Jyri - I have always been impressed of your concho's - I love that mirror you can make in them

Today is a good day

Jyri, that is a beautiful knot.

Re: Adam Winrich style whip

Jyri, the heel knot and poncho are a striking combination - well done!

I'll give it a try, Dad, but it's going to be really hard...kind of like trying to saw something in half using a banana.

Re: Adam Winrich style whip

Autocorrectasaurus got me... Concho, not poncho. And how is it that "autocorrectasaurus" is left alone?!?

I'll give it a try, Dad, but it's going to be really hard...kind of like trying to saw something in half using a banana.

Here is another one with this style.

This time i used steel rod as the handle.
Some thinking about this style:
I think that as the strands go lenghtwise and they are not bound they condense as you plait and you dont have to pull as hard when you plait. As they are pressed down they want to push outwards and that way they keep the plaiting tight.
I tryed to plait as hard as i usually do but that section came out way too stiff even that there is no binding under this belly.

Jyri - I sound like you are close to an explanation on the "loose plating" smile

Today is a good day

Re: Adam Winrich style whip

I don’t quite understand the push outwards when pressed down part, but I‘m not into plaiting and whipmaking details. But I‘d like to see a video of Jyri-made Winrich-style whip in action smile

Re: Adam Winrich style whip

Wolfgang, it would be much easier to explain it to you in Finnish but it would be much harder for you to understand it big_smile
You squeeze something, like a sponge, as you let go it goes to its original size and shape.
When i bind my cores the sponginess goes away as i bind it and drive all the movement out from the cord.
When the cords aren't binded, just compressed by the plaiting it feels like the strands has this effect inside the plaiting.

Re: Adam Winrich style whip

Thank you Jyri this makes it clearer! Seems to be an interesting experiment for sure smile

Re: Adam Winrich style whip

Nicely done.  I like the two different sizes, and I love the polish on that brass.

To the optimist, the glass is half full. To the pessimist, the glass is half empty. To the engineer, the glass is twice as big as it needs to be.

I made the heel knot and mounted the concho. Tomorrow i'll try to do the transition knot and hopefully i get to wax these two whips soon.

Re: Adam Winrich style whip

Jyri, I really like that concho.
Nicely done.

Re: Adam Winrich style whip

Jyri, this is fantastic! I really like the contrast bestrewn the blue and the silver - the concho is a beautiful finishing touch.

I'll give it a try, Dad, but it's going to be really hard...kind of like trying to saw something in half using a banana.

Here is the transition knot unrolled.

Re: Adam Winrich style whip

Jyri - just for my understanding. Why do you was the whips ?

I am fully aware that it will ad some different characteristics to the whips, but I have 6 ft and 7 ft whips without wast and they are performing very well indeed. They are more light weighted, but in fact sometimes I see this as an advantage (if it performs).

Today is a good day

Re: Adam Winrich style whip

Jyri, that looks fantastic. Nice work.

Flemming, I wax my whips because I like the way it feels and the way it looks after waxing.  It gives the entire whip a little extra mass. It also tightens it up considerably. Best of all though is that it gives the whip a weathered look that I like.

Re: Adam Winrich style whip

Mark - got it. I like the look of a waxed whip too, but when I grab a whip on the wall without thinking much about it is a light weighted non-waxed whip at the moment (just for the moment) smile

Thanks for your opinion

Today is a good day
