    Nice!
    Another way to use Amsteel.
    Please try it out and give me a note about it.

    Hoping that my Amsteel will come soon....

    Very cool
    I may try this with mason line. My UQ must not be as heavy as yours.

    Please let us know how they do for you.

    I have a DIY UQ that I have made of an old sleeping bag, it is quite heavy. I will test it and report later

    what are the finished dimensions of the inner triangle? it looks pretty slick!
    I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I have not lived.

    I'm not an UQ guy and must've missed something.
    How are these intended to be used?
