bmyers448 Posted September 30, 2015 Share #1 Posted September 30, 2015 It seems like everything I see relating to rigging involves at some point using CA to finish off a knot or rope or block with a drop of CA. In the past, I had been advised in other jewels from the internet that you should not use CA on any of the rigging because over time these areas become brittle and eventually break. And to be honest, I have observed that on some older models I have or have seen. So my question is this. If the use of CA in rigging (on threads, ropes etc) is going to only cause problems down the road in repairs....why are people advocating that it be used in rigging? It seems that tutorial after tutorial does this but nowhere do I see anyone saying "bad idea". I was led to believe that the best way to do rigging was to use waxed thread and sound precise knots. Have I been led astray at some point?? mtaylor 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
