    CLOSED: Mahha amsteel group buy

    This is for people attending the MAHHA fall hang only, I'm that not a snob, but it is how we are going to save on the shipping cost. Please only respond if you are going to be at the fall hang.



    Knotty had a good idea about getting together a group buy for amsteel for the Mahha. I put out some feelers on the Mahha fall hang thread and I think it should be a go. Rather then all of us paying shipping cost for a little I will buy a bunch and split the cost. Edit to show the new price of 14 cents.So I did some pricing and I can get 7/64 th at 14 cents a foot plus shipping. I think I like the idea of 7/64th at 1300 breaking strength for price and weight. I would like to only get the same size for everyone. So I will shop around and look for the best price for what the group wants. So even 50 feet will only set you back about $7. I will have to devide the shipping cost too but that should be minimal. Also we will be doing a whoopie sling workshop Saturday afternoon. Even if you don't want to go with a whoopie sling suspension, Amsteel is great for other purposes such as other suspensions, ridgeline, or pull a horse out of the mud with a truck. I won't know the price until we get the final number of feet we are buying. I prefer grey to avoid smurf hands, but price will determine the color. So please post how much you want to purchase. I will keep the running total on the bottom of this original post. Payment will be made at the hangout.

    I'd like 100 feet. Gray works for me too.

    Ok I am a snob, but that is better (in my mind) than a redneck.

    Dutch - You've probably done the math yourself, but all you need is 450 feet of commitment to go for the spool. 450 ft @ .26 = the 600 ft spool price.

    100' for me too. Especially if it's grey!

    PS - I was working on making splicing tools for 1/8" but I'll try to adapt it to 7/64.
