What's left of a once proud rack. Love it though.

For the naysayers, this practice (taking pictures of your rack) goes back a long time...

I just saw that picture recently, thought it was on Tom Frost's website. Certainly looks like they're out for sale. Cool picture though.

BD specs:
#3 C4: 50.7mm-87.9mm
#10 Hexentric: 55.6mm/75.2mm
#11 Hexentric: 65mm/89mm

Looks like a combination of 10 and 11 hexentrics would do it. Those are some big hexes. Get 'em slung and you can use them to hunt small animals.

You're right.. looks like a gear shop. Ice tools without so much as a scratch on them.. how do you manage that?

If this stuff actually get used (which we know it does) this is someone I'd have no problem lending my gear to, it would probably come back in better shape. :wink:

Not sure if you have something like this in your area but..

I get it from a specialty fabric store that has rolls and rolls of every color and width that you can buy, by the meter.

Look on the desk and you'll see a 2" roll. I'm sure scissors will fix that (or a band saw will make you 3-4 rolls)

Yeah, I've got the 2" stuff on my trekking poles and piolet; even cut some down for my helmet.

I'm just lazy and would rather find some 1/2" stuff :lol:

But think of the crimp strength you'll gain from cutting that 50' roll in half :wink:
