200pcs, want to split an order?!
dgowenlock, I have no imminent use for any of the locks : perhaps someone else might split the 200.
If I do need a few I would probably make aluminium versions.
Ali provides some useful sizes.
tried to delete
I bought these, there 50pcs
Why buy more plastic when a simple knot will do?
Knots don't hold in this line. I tried but everything slipped.
It's this cord by the way
Ahh yes I have some slippery stuff too, bit of a pain isn't it!
Pic from a couple of hours ago, almost finished now
Cone made for my Toaks 750 cup. 0.1m Titanium weighing in at 14g. Band to ensure correct distance from stove. Fits nicely in the pot and boils 500ml of cold water in 7m15 sec. 20ml bio ethanol put in stove and it continued to burn for a further 2 minutes or so.
Happy with that, nice little setup with a few windshield / burner options now.
New Dry Bag for Quilt(s) Cumulus 350 in smaller pic, 350 plus my MYOG Apex 133 quilt in larger pic. - Used an Off cut I had left over from a shelter repair. I had planned on using it for something else hence the silver markings Main seams sewn and taped.
Was not hungry during 'lunch' so made another cone. The Mk2 Ti Keg cone. Mk1 made a few years ago has been superb but a tight fit. This new one fits nicer, is 2g lighter the Ti feels nicer quality.
Sized to work with a Speedster style stove.
I had some dxg "left over" so decided to make another. It will probably end up for sale here
Going to be a frame less pack with removable 25mm hipbelt.
Progress so far
Finanly figured out how to stuff the Eva foam quickly on the straps.
Turn the straps right side out to check if everything is OK. Turn it inside out again but stop an inch before the end. Now you have about an inch opening (where the ladder lock sits) orient the foam the right way and insert it in that opening. Gently rub the fabric over the foam and you're done.
Probably nothing new but I was exited that I managed to add the foam in a matter of minutes instead of hours
Looks a bit **** in the pics but hasn’t turned out to bad. Similar to a Prophet really.
Heading out for a walk with the woofs and Simons collar was really tight. Five mins on the machine and problem solved lol.
UL and SUL...

Cutting weight already...
But upping the onboard carried weight ?

Could you give my hubby some lessons ?
Combining best ..
