Attached File  funnel_braided_line.jpg   92.54KB   5 downloads
I have struggled with braided line and fittings and think I have found a good way to thread the line into the fitting. I have not researched this much, so probably some of you have good methods of doing the same and have already shared this. I took a scrap piece of styrene sheet, drilled a hole through it that matches the bore of the fitting and then used a larger bit to create a counter bore or funnel shape. Then I lined up the holes of the sheet and the fitting and glued the fitting in place with white glue, let it dry and then was able to thread the line through the fitting. Now I can pull the fitting off the sheet, clean off the glue and continue working. Please share better ideas with me as I have not used braided line a lot. Thanks for looking.

thats a reat idea Dave, I usually cut it at an angle and start the point first then it goes right through (most of the time) you can also do this with wire also, works pretty well for me

I started the wheelie bars but needed more reference and found these pics on the web. Thought I would share them for those like me that need more info.

[IMG]http://www.flickr.co...782/8075515243/[/IMG]


oK so its not working like I planned but maybe since its your flickr account you can do it. I was just trying from the link you had and maybe they have an option with that IMG tag
