Maybe someone that wants to discuss whips could start a new thread just about those?

Anyone bout any 550 in Australia, can anyone recommend where to buy please.
Ive figured out how to do a round braid and i was wondering what the the wooden rings (like the ones stormdrane is using here) were used for and how to splice the braids. Thanks
You use the rings to braid a single strand.
Right it is a single strand of cord braided over the pins the more pins the larger and rounder the cord pluss if you need the cord it unravels quickly too
check this vid from Stormdranes site Link
you can make the spools easily I use copper tubing,nails, and hot glue. This site is where I learned how to do it Link
I dont think you can splice it.
So how do you do the braid with a single strand? Thanks for the help so far but I have basicly no experiance with braiding.
Maybe knitting would be a better term.
Actually, I believe that you are thinking of a crochet chain. Here is a hard-to-see turtorial.
Its actually called a sinnet I don't know why but any how, The easiest one to tie is a single chain.
All it involves is a slip knot after you tie it you form a loop in the long end and pass it through and pull tight.
hers a Link. The spool adds more loops
so one loop is flat two loops is square three loops starts to go round in shape its really easy to do. I'm at work now I'll post some Pics when I get home i have a couple of neck lanyards I did.

waaay late to this thread, and I hate to pull it back on topic,
but here's a great example of a good use for all of those little left-over bits of paracord

Do you have their address so we can send them all our left over bits? :lolhammer:
I've had several folks ask for help with this weaving paracord bracelet, so here's a photo sequence of the basics. Two core strands used since it's the easiest to teach(4 or 6 core strands can also be done and paired off for weaving by running the cords back and forth between a 5/8" buckle).
Just start like you would with a regular paracord bracelet, attach length of paracord to side release buckles(3/8", 1/2", 5/8" buckles, or shackle, etc...), figuring around a 1 foot of cord per inch of woven bracelet with the 2 strand core(plus extra to be on the safe side until you've made enough of 'em to be sure of your consitancy in making them) measure to wrist size and follow from there. I tucked the ends under the last couple of weaves to finish, but you can also sew/melt/glue the ends. I don't add more than a 1/4" to a wrist size when I make these, because as you keep the weave tight and pushed up against the previous ones as you go, it stretches out a bit and makes for a loose comfortable fit. YMMV so try it to see how it fits before you cut and finish...
Ill use it to hang rope in the garage. ;D

What type of knot are they using to attach them to the missile? :lolhammer:
Do you make these for forum members? How much would one cost?
I like the black and sand one in the first picture.
You can buy those anytime on Ebay, Etsy or various other sites around the web. They typically go for about 10 bucks shipped. However, if you have the colors already, it's really simple to make one.
Some of my latest work for your consideration.
You have been busy. Very nice.
