Re: how to splice rope

You want to keep your mind and sanity check out the following site How to Eye Splice double braid rope
very easy to follow and great results. I have no connection with the site other than have used for my own splicing needs and have been very [leased with the out comes.

Re: how to splice rope

Before eye splicing Dacron lines, practice on some nylon line. It is easier to "milk".

Re: how to splice rope

Be sure to purchase the correct size fids for whatever size lines you work with...

Certified...in several regards...

Re: how to splice rope

Go to the Brion Toss web site.
Brion Toss Yacht Riggers, Sailboat Rigging
Buy his splicing video, a medium splicing wand, 4" marlingspike, and a small Point Hudson "Phid". Add the small wand to do 1/4" and 5/16". The medium works for 3/8 to 5/8 braid from my experience.
IMHO, One of the best purchases I ever made. find some #4 waxed twine, #10 sailmakers needles, and a riggers Palm. These tools and knowledge will serve you over and over.

Re: how to splice rope

Pull-through fids work well. I use a metal wire coat hanger for a quick job or have one made up from stainless steel welding rod with a narrow loop formed at one end. The palm, waxed thread and needles you certainly need. I think my kit cost me about two hundred dollars all together--and has paid for itself in beer several times by now. For three strand ropes I use a locked loop splice in nylon, but for silver rope I use the usual hemp rope eye splices but take them an extra two turns. For three strand ropes I use a curved hollow stainless steel fid.
