The shackle one is my fav.
Yeah I'm gonna have to copy that on my next one. We need some pics of some of Gerry's homemade ones, he has some really cool ones in fundamentals. I think he gave the super cool looking one to Gary Storrick if i remember right, who has one of the coolest websites in history i might add.

IMHO. I wouldn't paint a POW. Rope might stick to it.
I thought about that.... I might take your advice and leave it raw, but it just wouldn't fit in with all the other shiny bits and pieces.
I take pride in slowly wearing the paint off mine , thanks to August I have a small one as well which I like in the Tree.
Here you go Stig, a collection of rope working gear, from caving to trees, by Gary Storrick. I nerded out on this website all the time, and learned so much there.
Yeah i was right here's where Gerry's cool friction device ended up...
Coool Site. Ill have to explore it more later. Stehanson fabbed up 3 for more in different sizes. Yours looks great buddy!. My welding skills ain't quit up to it yet. Too rough. Steve painted mine, paint just rubs off...
Interesting how a limited gene pool and a limited labor force seem to be so closely related.
Storrick's site is a great resource, for sure. Has been for old school SRT and rappellers for a couple of decades. He's a caver.
