michael mott Posted March 7, 2014 Share #1 Posted March 7, 2014 After spending a couple of hours yesterday sorting out the whole splicing gig, I felt that it would be much easier to clamp the smaller lines to free up both hands while threading and weaving the strands back on themselves so using up a few odds and ends this is what I came up with. first I took the dremel chuck out of the earlier mini drill and fitted it to an ebony block. The dremel chuck will allow for different size ropes because of the interchangeable collets. The other end was made from a short length of 3/8 hex brass both ends can be rotated in their holders. By using an adjustable clamp I can use different rope sizes and create different eye sizes easily After the rope is clamped to the loop end the rope is pulled through the dremel collet then the collet tightened to put some tension on the rope that will be threaded into. I did have to drill through the dremel holder to allow the rope to pass through. and now rotated a quarter turn Tomorrow I will see how the clamp works.
