On my first ever PIF I got a tablecloth blank. I've been wanting to get a thread injector but when I have the spare funds I can find a deal and vice versa.
So I finally decided to go the gathered end whip method.
The whipping part was easy I had two spare dog boned that I made out of Amsteel, gathered the end wrapped the dog one around it twice then ran it thru one eye. Then snugged it TIGHT.
Then I tested it out, it works great.
