New Progress and New Gear

Bob Dollar of R&W Rope came to our shop to introduce us to the Liverpool Wire Splice. Books are helpful in the learning process, but something as complex as a Liverpool splice really needs a personal session to show the “art” in the task. Bob told “Bosun” Herb that he’ll need to practice, so as you can see him practicing this new craft below.

Tools make all the difference, so Bob also brought us a splicing clamp which you can see here:

Meanwhile, Bill has been working on our very complex spreader assembly. The inboard half of the Douglas Fir spreader is actually an I-beam and Bill is shown routing out the center section. He’s using our first non-laminated spreader as a router guide.

PS: If anyone would be interested in learning how to splice, come visit us; you know where we are! If you wish to do some at-home research on it, Bob suggests going to thesquarerigger.com
