Great rigging rope supplier.

Postby Brian077 » Mon Apr 24, 2017 3:52 am

Hi guys,
my usual block and rigging rope supplier has been a bit irratic lately, so I have been looking around for alternatives.

Got a great deal from Alexey Domanoff from Belarus. It actually worked out about the same price and he accepts paypal. I have been buying from him in the past and can recommend him very highly.

Hi Brian

I must work out what rope I will need for my Connie. I've dealt with Alexey before and found his communication with me was excellent. I must check out the rope with you.

Cheers
Geoff

Geoff,
Why don't you start making your own ropes? Easy!

I would not know where to start making rope. I could find out pretty easily

At the moment I have 1500 copper plates to worry about before the rope.

I liked most of your post, but not quite all. It had a handle

It is not CNC controlled

Make the jig and get rid of the handle.

Buy a stepper motor $12.00 AU on eBay
Buy a controller card $14.00 AU on eBay
GRBL - Open source so it is free
Download Universal Gcode Sender - Open source so it is free.

A standard stepper motor stepper has 200 steps to a complete turn and can be controlled buy the computer.

All you need to know in this case is how long and how many turns.

This is the same for a CNC router.

You could make the same rope time and time again.
