    coiling cords

    could you tell me the official name for this coiling/knotting process? I have looked for a number of days and can't find how to coil like you did. I've tried "tangle knot", "bird nest knot". any other suggestions?

    thanks Rob

      I don't have the slightest clue what the cord winding process is called either but I have been using it for about 18 years every since I worked on a bridge gang for awhile that is how they wound all of them there. Made for a pretty nice way of getting the cords wound and was easy after you got the hang of it for unwinding the cords.

            I would also like to learn how to wrap my cords like this. Can someone show us how it is done? Also, what is the trick to undo the cord so I;m not the joke of the day?

            Thank you.

                daisy chain

                hey guys - just so happens I got my new "Handyman" magazine yesterday and they have an article in there about how to wind your cords like that. It's called a daisy chain and they have a picture sequence on how it's done.
                Have fun!!

                  Is there a web site for that magazine?

                  Is there a web site for that magazine article?
                  Can someone explain how it is done if web access isn't possible?

                    Here is a sequence of photos showing how to daisy-chain webbing ... it will work the same with power cords. They shake out beautifully with no kinks or twists.

                        chaining

                        When I chain mine, I just plug the ends together instead of trying to find the middle of the cord to start at. Then just tie a loose knot and stack as many slip knots on top of each other until you run out of cord. at the end, just tuck the last few inches of cord back through the last loop to secure it. I usually make the loops pretty big (6-8in diam) just so it doesn't take a lot of time with several small loops. The down side to starting from the ends is that if only need a few feet of cord, you still have to uncoil it all. If you start in the middle and end with the plugs, then you can just uncoil what you need. Personally, I rarely use just a little cord, so I don't worry about it.

                        Oh and about the grinding of the brake drums......I haven't actually had to grind one down yet, it was just something I thought about once. The beads would accomplish the same thing. If you wanted to get real fancy, you could weld on some nuts inside the drum and put three leveling bolts (the only problem I could foresee is the fact that they are cast iron, so you'd have to deal with that whole scenario). The other great thing about those drums is that if you need a REALLY heavy base you can flip them over and fill them up with concrete. SSS

                          chaining pictures

                          Ok, it has been raining here most of the day and I'm the only one in the office. I've entered all the expense spread sheets I can take for one day, so I figured I run back to the shop and take some pics of this whole cord wrapping thing we have going on. Hope this helps...SSS
