    Default 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!!

    Default 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.

    Default 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

    Default 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
