Soren Posted September 15, 2015 Share #1 Posted September 15, 2015 Hello, I am in the process of creating my own rope for the first time. for the purpose I have acquired myself a Planetary ropewalk - so far so good. The big question for me is: I need to make rope with a diameter: 0,25, 0,40, 0,50 and 0,75 mm. (and a few more). the first one (0,25mm) I can easily make with a 3 strand of my base thread, but then my trouble starts. To create a rope with a diameter of 0,50mm would you then take 3 strands of 0,25 rope and turn it oppisite direction (i.e. first 0,25mm is made a S-turned, then the 0,50 mm would be z-turned) or should they be turned in the same direction? To make the 0,40 mm my initial thought was making a 2 strand thread from my base thread to create a rope with a diameter of circa 0,18mm and then use 3 ropes to make the 0,40 robe. Would that be completely off? Finally how to make the thick ropes (0,75mm)? could the same base thread be used or do you need a thicker base thread? Thanks a lot in advance Søren Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
