splicing wire

Sheaves designed to work with wire to rope halyards may damage all rope halyards. Altering the sheaves or buying new ones adds to the cost.
The method for making the splice is described in detail in ''The Riggers Apprentice'' by Brion Toss. An excellent source of information on many rigging problems.
