Part of advancing the knowledge is being open about things that were less than successful. I fell prey to chasing the weight genie on this one.
I had some 1/2 inch aluminum tubing around the house and tried to make a mini spreader bar. After cutting and drilling the bar weighed about one ounce. Recognizing that the holes could present sharp edges, I spent considerable time filing them to avoid them. I even tried heat shrink tubing to protect the amsteel. No luck. I think the tubing wall was just to thin to avoid cutting through the heat shrink. Haven't totally given up, but some more thought needs to go into how to avoid putting a knife against my suspension.ImageUploadedByTapatalk1358258671.238810.jpgImageUploadedByTapatalk1358258686.408026.jpg
