So I stayed inside today and put my first hook on a piece of Amstel blue from my old broken winch line. But the kit frim Viking didn't have enuf whipping twine to do the other end. Was going to order some up from Amazon.. But am not sure if I want number 2 number 6 number 12 or whatever. For you synthetic rope guys ... What is it that you are using for whipping twine?

Don't you have a Michael's or JoAnn Fabrics down on Woodside road? The whipping twine doesn't take any load, so I'm sure they'll have something to suit. Or if you must go to a 'real' store then West Marine in San Carlos should have something. Take a sample along. Keep it local!

Yes that's what I was looking at from West Marine. but I don't know what size and am too lazy to drive down the hill in the rain to find out!

It gives the diameters.

#4 is 0.8mm
#8 is 1mm
#16 is 1.5mm

I would think the thinner stuff is what you need.

I'll actually be going in there in an hour or so, so I can check stock if you like ....

Ya, looking at the picture Chuck posted, the black twine looks a lot thicker than what you provided us to practice with; the green 1mm stuff worked well.

You can use dental floss if you wanted. Since there is no load placed on the whipping twine, pretty much any thread-like product will work with the lock stitch.

Post a pic of your other end:)

We did an eye splice at the Annual -- is it possible to mend a line break in the middle? Just curious if the synthetic line I just recently got broke at 40' (essentially halfway), is it possible to repair the two parts back together?

Woah, the line broke already? Yes, it's possible to splice in the middle of the line. It's the same basic procedure as the loop at the end, except you pass the line the the center of itself to lock it in place first.

Can you post a pic of the broken ends? A lot of times, when a new line breaks (especially on its first couple of uses) there's a chance it was wound the wrong way on the drum. If it rubs against the fairlead opening, it'll slice right through the rope if there's any tension around the edges. I didn't pay attention to it that closely on the LC trip. Does it spool out from the bottom of the drum or the top?

I'll have the splicing kit with me and we can have an impromptu winchline repair class whenever you like.

No no, sorry -- line did not break (hasn't actually been used yet.) I was just curious if it could be done *if* the line severed in the middle. Thanks for the info, B.

Well that's a relief, though I was looking forward to more splicing...

I know when I got my splicing kit from Viking Offroad that it had directions on how to do a in-line splice. It was pretty similar to what the other process was. Of course, I've actually (shocker) tied the two ends together but it weakens the rope quite a bit. But it's faster than splicing it if you are blocking the trail..

What you really gotta watch for is rubbing the side of the rope against a rock or something when winching. Gotta have some sort of protection or the rope will snap in an instant under load.
