    Im familiar with the samson instructions, that's the way i dont want to do it. I dont care for how the strands are just there, by themselves individually. Im gonna hafta try with the crown. Im prettttyy sure ive done it but i threw away old scraps.. Ive ran across a couple people in the boat world mentioning it, but figured maybe nick would see this or someone.

    I think ive done it inthe past, but the first turn aroune the chain, or carabiner in this case. Can you do a crown, then proceed to splice? Instead of doing one strand on way thru, and the other two strands the opposite?

    For everyday rigging and loads, i think bend radius means jack. Like the fishpole technique, it was an issue created to sell a product to guys who hang way to much off their saddle in the first place. IMO of course.

    I had always thought no matter how many x rings you line up, the bend radius is the same on the corners as having just one anyways. They look neat, i still dont have any rings. 10 years so far and ive never wished for more than my two CMI 5/8" Arborist Pulley. Strap on the toys boys!

    brendonv replied to a thread Best Lift???? in Gear Forum
    Im thinking sd64 late spring. Hopefully can contribute to carls stock fever. I had the truck, loved using it when i actually did. I just didnt care for driving it, and was always affraid of lawn and driveway damage. Id find reasons not to use it, so off it went. The whole registration, inspection, truck police, kept me from enjoying it. They sure are handy tho, and with how i setup my micro setup, a mobile lift could be a game changer for me. The sd seems stout, some just look so cheasy. The tuepen i ran was scary, he has a omme? now. Im amazed how much thsy thing sways in wind.

    Ya its lame. They expected the healthy people to pay for the sick people. The healthy people said screw this (me included), dropped out, hence the disaster (among other things). Its disgusting, and i get to hear the stories from the hospital from Ashly. Really gets ya fired up

    I had good insurance till obama mandated it. Then it almost doubled, for less coverage too. I dropped it and paid the fine for a couple years, took a risk and got lucky. Nothing i do is safe from my work to after work activities. Luckily i have it now thru Ashly. Insurance is a joke, as is the system.

    Jim, i do beleove the black vs red and white is an older concern. The GX are the pro grade Honda's, while the GC are the lower end. I believe they used to color coat, but now GX also come in black. My love affiar with Honda comes from MX. The materials and craftsman ship of them are obvious next to other manufacturers.
