• Video: Amsteel Continuous Loop

    Hey guys,

    I'm back with another splicing video. Since I got so much positive feedback on my ridgeline video, I though I'd make some more for you. Here is the first one on making a continuous loop from Amsteel. I'd like to thank Opie for his pictorial on this process, and also SmokeBait for his formula for making them.

    Opie's Pictorial:

    SmokeBait's Formula:

    Here is my version of the formula, or check out the video for a visual description:

    C=Length of the starting piece
    L=Desired finished length of the loop
    B=Bury length
    T=Taper on ends (usually 3/4-1")
    Loss from the bury is about 25% of B. So for two buries we multiply B by 2.5.

    C = 2(L) + 2.5(B) + 2(T)

    So for an 8" finished loop with 4" buries and 1" tapers, it would look like this:

    C = 2(8) + 2.5(4) +2(1)
    C = 16 + 10 + 2
    C = 28"

    Here is the video for a visual description of this, along with the details on splicing it. Thanks for watching guys, I hope this helps some people out!
