    Locked Brummel Splice Video Tutorial

    I may not be posting this in the appropriate place, but here goes!

    I had come across several good pic-tutorials on how to make the locked brummel splice, but couldn't find any videos for it...so I made one myself. The video can be found here (couldn't figure out how to embed the video in my forum post, sorry!)



    Enjoy!

    Enjoy!
    Great Video of how to do the locked brummel.

    If you are shooting for a specific amount of bury and a specific size loop, this how I measure things out.

    1) The length of the bury is measured from the end of the line to be spliced.
    2) Mark that point
    3) The size of the fixed eye loop is measured from the mark for the bury length.

    Example. If I want a 6" bury with a 4 inch (really 8 inch circumference) long fixed eye.

    Measure out 6" from the end and make a mark. Make a second mark twice the size of the fixed eye you're after and make your mark.

    Then proceed with how to do the locked brummel outlined in your video.

    Cheers

    Brian

    Thanks! Unfortunatly youtube will only take 10 mins or less of video, and that video was 11:17.

    I'll talk and move faster on my next video and maybe I can get it on youtube!! lol!
