Thanks a lot John Mc

I had forgotten about this type of sleeve.

I won't buy one. But it gave me ideas.

My cable is either 11 or 11.5 millimeters. I can't remember.
It's a simple, but effective concept. It would not be hard to make something that works on the same principle.

I like that!! Don't like the $50 price, but I suppose buy it once and it will last for years.  :)

I think I paid about $35 for mine, but that was probably eight or 10 years ago.

I think I have another one around somewhere, but it doesn't have the swivel built-in to it. I like the swivel because if a log rolls down a side hill, it doesn't wind up my cable like the grab hook I used to have on the end did

Ok. Thanks a lot guys. 

The big question, 

Just an end, with  chokers? 

Just an eye? 

An eye with a hook?

It is in america too.  Its kinda odd but i never lowball people, often pay extra -seriously- and seem to get some excellent deals.  I do better being generous than stingy. If the asking price doesnt match my appraisal i just dont call.  If it does ill  call and say i will give you the whole amount if its what you say it is.  Sellers will wait a week on me or take ads down before im even there.  It really is incredible how influential just saying im content with the price can be.  


Both the houses ive bought have been dual agent.. Meaning i agree to buy without a realtor and let the sellers agent collect both halfs of the 6% fee.  You wanna see how fast a realtor will dump their client, put off other bidders and push the seller to immediately accept your offer and double their take on the sale?   Try it.  Massive influence.

I am stingy.  ;D And i haggle like mad. But there is an illness in France, called "lingotite"  (lingot is a gold bar)

Which attacks certain type of people, thinking that the old rustbucket they have is worth gold bars.

If the price is good for me, i don't haggle. Like for my sawmill.

1500€ the sawmill,
1000 for the blades.

At 10 o clock, she had the money on her account!

I do also swaps. If all goes well, i'll talk about that soon.

we have many of them on the sellers side.  "barnfind" is usually in the keyword of their ad.

Yeah, and for house sellers, charming, cosy, kitchenette, etc, usually are words used by estate agents trying to get rid of a turd.

In French, "coquet" = pimped or tarted up! :D

I don't know how to translate coquet.

Found it, stylish.

There is a number of ways of eye splicing wire rope ,they all work .It might be of note to use a swivel on the bitter end else it will ruin the rope after a period of use .You can Google the process perhaps shown on You Tube much better than I can attempt to explain it .Also of note attention should be given on how the "lay " of the rope over the winch drum is  done .

Thanks a lot Al.

Well, i know i like this video. From six minutes onwards.



There is a better one in russian.  But couldn't find it.

Mind you, i cannot do that. To splice, you need an equal number of strands. The cable i've used is 9 strands. 

I thyink it'll end up with cable clamps.

Why not just attach hook to the end with one of these things from Labonville.

Another method I normally use----Really Quick Wire Rope Eye-splice. : 3 Steps - Instructables .This is often used on big choker cables finished off using a crimped sleeve .You can do the finish several other  ways . One is using a "Crosby " type cable clamp or just by serving the fold back ends using wire .I've used all three methods and so far never had one unravel .Saying that I've also back spliced the eye which is far more  difficult to do .Not nearly as easy as something like 3 strand nylon or Manilla line .--Note I use U S  Navy terms where rope is steel cable and line is what most people call rope .--old habits die hard---- ;)

Al, don’t worry. I do the same thing as your talking about. I had it drilled into me by dad YEARS ago. Yes, drilled. A Marine until he died. Every time I called it cable dad would get more and more “stern” with his correction of me. I changed for good because I didn’t like the thought of a boot placed where I sit! 😱

Al, this is what we call forester or Portuguese eye. Nearly impossible with 9 braid i think.
