    Good catch Stig :LOL: Luckily the couple times I've gaffed out early in the piece I wasn't very high up, so I learned to adjust my positioning, and/or take a full wrap, or throw another lanyard up higher...keep spikes sharp. The worst is the person with their butt sticking out while arms are hugging :lol:

    To me it's just a less expensive option than building another shed or something .While it's been kind of fun doing the prep work for this thing it's also been a pain in the buttocks .Reviving a 65 year old bulldozer that had not been even started in like 14 years for one .As I recall also a 200 pound rail road tie didn't seem to be quite as heavy years ago as it is today . I'll be happy when it's over because this project has seriously hampered my beer drinking time .

    It wouldn't take one of those heavy things which actually is one thing I don't have .If it were on blocks a three ton floor jack with a big pad would do it .It 's not like you are lifting the whole thing all at once .I've got a ten ton floor jack but it would take a hi lift to move it .That thing will lift the whole rear end of a D4 Caterpillar like it was a feather .

    A story from a long time ago .My first wife was research assistant at the Coast Guard Academy when the CG did the most comprehensive testing of all types of line up to that point .All types of lines such as nylon ,manila ,steel cable etc .Two senior honor students and several engineers were involved .Those ornery kids went on to be admirals but I remember them at my apartment drinking my beer and smoking my cigarettes and I have to laugh at that . I only lived about a half a mile from the CG academy in New London Conn . That study was as thick as the old Sears and Roebuck catalog of years ago once it was completed and I have yet to find any thing on line .My ex had a copy but she's deceased .It had testing not only on the lines but splices,knots ,wet .dry,oil soaked It took the best part of the final year of those two senior cadets .I would have liked to have seen them both graduate but I got out of the navy several months before the event .

    On that elongation issue we used to splice ,just after the eye spice 17" of white line in a 10" area . White line is soft 3 strand cotton with almost no elongation .That way if the white line got tight as the main line stretched you know that was about all the main line could take before it failed .You also don't tuck the bitter ends of the splice but leave a tail of a couple inches because the eye splice elongates also under strain . I don't think the navy uses 3 strand any more and has gone to double braid nylon .On that I have no idea what the elongation rate is but we all know it's stronger per diameter .--Edit : I just checked ,for insured safety against failure the safe working load on three strand has been down graded to 50 percent elongation instead of 70 percent .70 was the parting point of failure almost 50 years ago .---- .

    Hey Gigi,
    I've been hearing your radio ad every week. Very effective! You will reach more clients through radio than you would through telephone ad.
