    Just to follow up, on a whim I picked up the Dremel multi tool hot knife whatever from Amazon. Happy to report it works great (so far), did an 11' length through two layers of PolyD last night on a...

    I had the same experience as doogie, using the W whipping my 1.2 brick red PolyD tore at the whipping and I weight 205. I actually had it setup using the HH style fold before that with no issue (fold...

    I've been using locked brummel loops more and more. The bump doesn't bother me, and you can make much smaller loops with it. The "same direction" non-locked approach a la Opie's video in the...

    So as you surmised, this worked just fine. Was just extra careful to make sure that neither one of the layers had any extra length/bunch before I whipped the second end.
  7. Any way to quickly test double layer (for stretch)?

    I've been playing with and comparing fabrics all day, just doing quick HH folds w/ sheet bend whipping and keeping them the same length so I can swap them on the stand. With single layers it's...

    I tend to reach for the jumbo ones more often than the regular sized ones. Smaller ones only get used where edges of two pieces of fabric are very closely aligned, e.g. starting a french seam. For a...

    I've got a 60w iron and a 40w hot knife.. both work but the 40w is a better ergo design w/ a longer cord. I just find that on longer cuts of 24"+ I run into issues w/ too much heat loss at the tip....

    I'm 6'5" 205 and the 1.1 DL is super for me, I agree that DL 1.7 is overkill. I use a pad on occasion, and sometimes that's between the layers so it's nice to have the option if you use 3/4 length...

    Nice.. guess no fears about it being too stretchy? Prior to new fabric tech 1.1 DL was my goto (I weight in at 205), I just figured the 1.6 + 0.7 would be in a similar ballpark.

    I'm curious if you think the Black 67 taffeta would make a good top layer in a DL hammock, with a 1.6 nylonD bottom layer? Not sure if the A67 would really contribute much to weight...
