    Very Nice, thanks for sharing! ans an aside, if you cate to buy some multi strand wire such as at the local hardware store and strip the casing, you have very affordable copper to tie with, and you can down to some really small diameters t ouse just as a rib/lock in

    Not to worry Mr. T; Allan B is one of the best tier's in the UK. In the same section of the CF board he has several other 'things' he shows folks how to do. Best part is he's a VERY good photographer!
