Would love to but can't spare the funds right now. I'll catch you at the next one.
Used my saw the other day and was immediately taken back to fake blood and trying to mimic an arterial bleed. It did make me put my TQ more accessible.
Scheduled to go to Egypt in March. Depends upon how the finances recover after that trip....and the body. Those kind of trips usually take the zip out of my step for a few weeks.
The misses started carrying a RATS TQ in her purse every where now.
Thats a great sized TQ.
Since DM I carry my CAT TQ everywhere.
It changes you for the better thats for sure!
I carry one of those RATS TQ's in a re-purposed leatherman style holster on my belt every day now.
Making cordage sucks. Vital. But still sucks.
What kind were you making? And yes it does.
Grass with the pinch twist thing.
What kind of strength do you get out of the grass cordage?
Crappy but thats due to the creator thus far.
You should try weaving in some beard hair, may give you the tensile strength your looking for.
Thats not a bad idea. Too bad i just trimmed it to candiru length.
Just buy 3mm Dyneema and be done with it. No twisting with your fingers and plenty of tensile strength.
Pics or it never happened.
Im ok with that.
I agree. Although the leather strap i used for bowdrill gripped the spindle better than any cord ive used thus far. Also, trying to get a feel for worse case scenario and work on skills for the class.
I broke my leather bowdrill strap last time out. Have not tried with foraged material. That is another level of difficulty.
