    I'm guessing we're talking about the CC-type buckles

    http://www.onrope1.com/index.php?mod...emnumber=dj101 ?

    I'd be more than willing to go in with somebody to get a larger order together. I'd like to get ahold of at least four of these.

    webbing stufff

    Polypropylene webbing, while pound for pound or inch for inch not as strong as nylon webbing, is preferred because of its lower stretch. Hang a hammock from nylon webbing and you might be dragging butt by morning as the webbing stretches. Most tubular webbing is nylon. The "give" of nylon tubular webbing can be great when rigging a top rope anchor, but you want something stiffer for prolonged hanging.

    A small needle will sew adequately through webbing as it's usually not that tightly woven, but you'll certainly want to change the needle before sewing silnylon again as the webbing will likely blunt the needle tip. I like to start each project with a fresh needle and usually leave the webbing and other thick fabric stuff for the end so it doesn't always matter.

    Check the thread for cotton. If it's got cotton, don't use it for outdoor gear. I once saw a signature line with the quote "friends don't let friends sew with coats and clark." Makes sense to me. The only exception is I sometimes use C&C upholstery thread (100% nylon) where I need an especially strong thread. Gütermann thread is 100% polyester.

    I've found poly and nylon webbing at a local Ace Hardware store. Most don't carry it, so no guarantees. If you're near a lake, river, ocean or other place with boats and marinas your more likely to find it in stock. Otherwise, Ed sells it (and a lot of other good stuff) by the foot.

    Hey, which buckles on this site are you talking about? I might be interested in a few too.

    Fixed the link. It's the one Arkwater posted on Jeff's CC strap DIY thread.

    i`d like to get about 4 cc buckels too. when does the cost shipping go up for the original order? if someone`s going to do that, mabey you can check to get an idea how much each person should send you (along w/ the cost of the buckels) to be sure you don`t come up on the short end of the stick. ...tim

    .

    6. Will I most likely need to add a piece of yarn for drip strings now...in case the straps flip into a U shape? If so, where do I tie them on?

    .
    i`m going to start another thread on drip lines so it will be easyer for people to find later. ...tim

    Hey Blackbishop, seeing I've not even made my straps yet, if I wanted to put buckles on them I just need 2 right? These 1" buckles will work for the 1" webbing I ordered from Ed Speer right?

    Those look just like the buckles from Crazy Creek, and I use Ed's webbing. Should work fine.

    If you do an order I would like to have some also. Just let me know.

    Is Claytor's webbing tubular? For some reason I thought it wasn't just a single layer of webbing.
    Claytor's webbing is not tubular but it does seem to be thicker than most flat webbing. It also has a very soft slippery hand so it is very easy to tie/untie etc. I really like it.
