8966Re: [KnotTyers] How can I make a wire loop for splicing?
- Dec 5, 2013
Thanks for the tip. Today I used some 19ga galvanized wire I had, measured 14 inches, middled it and measured the same length of 2mm cord. I put the cord in to a 1/16" aluminum ferrule and the wire in the other end, crimped it all together. To make the final tight bend in the wire I heated that parts glowing red with a small butane torch and let it cool in air. All assembled I tried the loop in making an endless splice in some 3/16" double braid. It worked and was much better than my previous technique. The tool still isn't quite up to snuff but I found a proper looking version for sale on line and am trying to order it. This weekend (or soon) I will look at some piano wire and if I get the chance I will check out guitar string.
