    Great stuff  -  for 4' lengths of line ! What if you need, say, 40' ? (and no, I'm not about to tie 10 of 'em together).

    But I need 100ft of rope, not 4ft! Search videos of Malaysian rope making, not nearly as complicated and they do it in the jungle without tools... who'd a thunk?

    You could probably burn the end to gather rather then tape.

    Here's something cool, if you know any yarn users... "Roving" is just as expensive as "plied" yarn. It's generally much softer and creates a beautifully smooth texture to ones knitting etc. You can buy "bulky" thickness yarn which is simply plied roving, then basically do the opposite of making rope and undo the ply's thus producing large quantiles of roving for a fraction of the price. Un-rotating does not require untwisting of each ply in order to separate. It can be simply unwound as a hole with one entire end in a drill turing in reverse while the other end is completely fixed. Hope you enjoy this tidbit of info... I look forward to watching many more of your very interesting videos. That you so much for making them. :))

    Love this series of videos you made. All brilliant ideas and you've engineered everything very well! As an avid knitter, I engineered a device much cruder than your nicely refined one but did do the trick. The inherent flaw in making rope is distance. In order to make a longer section of rope it can require extremely long distances. I also used my drill to power everything; however, at the opposite end I also threaded the finished product through an opening in the center that would allow for stopping and wrapping the made rope around a spinal. The spinal ultimately ends up being the connection point and its "energy" (the actual term for this type of tension (( who knew haha))) can be released later during usage or by allowing the spindle to rotate after each length of rope is twisted just prior to wrapping the finished rope around the spindle. Give this a try, I think you'll dig-it :) P.S. Each time you add another stand to your rope it's referred to as "ply"... :)

    Thank you so much for this!!! I make handmade horse halters and I needed a way to make my own lead ropes. This is how I do it! I even made a 25' one by stretching this across my barn. That was awesome.

    Grant - you are just awesome. We made rope when I was in scouts in 1974... I think that was the last time I ever saw anyone make their own rope.

    I love that you are part of our quest to turn off the TV / gadgets and get back outside and play!!

    Thanks for all the random coolness.

    turn the string into rope, put the rope in liquid nitrogen, take it out and put it in a vacuum chamber, cut it with a 1000 degree knife, melt it in a forge, douse it in water and shoot it from a potato gun.

    I wonder.... Have you seen the channel "Primitive Technology"? The guy builds a number of structures and tools using only stone-age tools. Sticks, rocks, bark cordage, raw lumber, clay, ash and so on.

    Do you think you'd be able to make a machine similar to this successful rope-braider, using his method, and replacing the drill with a hand crank?

    The rope is weaker than the sum of the individual fibres. Not 'exponentially stronger'. Winding the fibres into rope puts them in additional tension.

    i think it would be nest if you hooked up a spool of rope to make a continuous feed of rope.(and maybe an automated turning system)

  • Jeremy List

    I'm guessing you'll be able to make even more even ropes once the knob on the slider has worn down a little; just because the grooves that wear in to it will guide the strands to the middle.

    Take a round file and cut grooves into the wood knob to help guide the strings. Lube your slide with beeswax to help reduce friction.
