    I'd like to say thanks but I'm just mad, all the years I've been struggling to tie those round my fingers and I never thought of that!
    So simple it's stupid but clever. Umm Thanks!

    I got to my workshop today and the first thing I did.... was make tea, well the second thing I did was hunt around for some 6mm stainless bar I knew was kicking around somewhere, I found it and bent up one of these jigs. THEY WORK! 3,4or 5 strand is equally as easy, why didn't I know about this before? :doh:
  1. It's a good design. I think, though, that when I make mine, I'll use a coat hanger that doesn't have moss and lichens and rust thriving on it! :laugh:
    (Where did that guy get that hanger?! The Andrea Doria wreck?! :laugh:)
  2. You should have seen the ridiculous cardboard/glue/bamboo-skewer contraption I came up with when I made the 8-turn Monkey's Fist for my skydive throwout handle! OMG I could have used this dealie at that time!
