adamowens Bill,
I drilled 1/2 inch holes while the hadles were still in the lathe. The pins are 1/2 inch stainless round bar epoxied about 1 1/2 inches deep in the handle.

adamowens I think they just call it spiral wrap. You should be able to find it at any auto parts store. I think it is pretty popular with car audio installers for bundling wires, especially when individual wires need to exit the bundle along the way.

mazzy It's called "spiral wrap". Ace Hardware (and maybe HD/Lowes) should carry it. Here's an on-line site

AdamLein Very nice! And the granny bars look really secure.

By the way I had a look through the rest of the album and I see you have some wiring wrapped in ... some helical black wrapping stuff. If I may beg to know, what is the term for that helical black wrapping stuff?

Belaying pins

I finally got around to making some belaying pins for my granny bars. I think they're going to be really handy for storing lazy halyards (so I can sleep). Fun project. Take a look and tell me what you think. And no comments about my lack of varnishing talent
