    SOLD: Hammock socks, ring and cinch buckles

    I am trying to decide whether or not to offer weather covers (socks) and ring and cinch buckles for sale outside of my local friends. I have made several socks, one piece and two piece, and many ring buckles and cinch buckles to help my friends get going.
    If you are interested in buying one of these I could post more pictures. If I find an interest exists, I will put some prices down. I only want to do these two things, no tarps, quilts, packs, or hammocks.
    There are many who could do a better job than I but I am not doing bad with my machine. Been sewing since high school on and off. Check out some of the things I have been making since meeting with you all on this site. I am retired and have the time.
    Neo might be able to vouch for my sewing. Hugh Neo.
    Thanks for any feedback on this you can give me.

    It's just my opinion, but if you enjoy sewing the items and want to spend your time making them then absolutely you should offer them.
    I think that when the lies are all told and forgot the truth will be there yet. It dont move about from place to place and it dont change from time to time. You cant corrupt it any more than you can salt salt. - Cormac McCarthy

    What he said.
    I am a gear nut, (ok I may be the only one..) I love to see what is out there, especially home grown, cottage industry and DIY stuff, so I can get an idea of if I want to attempt it down the road ... you know once the kids toys and projects don't block access to mine in the basement.

    go for it

    Your stuff sure looks good to me. It is going well for the preacherswife. For my part, sewing has become a pain. The only reason I do it is that the things I wanted, like zHammock and Just Jeff style socks are not available (and I am too cheap to pay the big prices the commercial guys charge). I see in the one pic you are under the campmor quilt. They are really warm, aren't they.

    Gentle raindrops and mighty oceans...neither can exist without the other.
    Time heals all wounds...but it usually leaves a pretty big scar.

    I am dealing with someone on PMs and have come to a tentative price of
    1. $56.00, shipped C US, for Claytor/Clark suspension setup (adding 18 inch long through-ends webbing w loops, with cinch buckles and 15 feet of high tenacity webbing- loops both ends, (no Tree Huggers).
    2. $50.00 shipped C. US, for non Claytor/Clark. (Does not need through channel webbing
    3. $60.00 Weather Cover, (Sock) in DWR, simple rectangle design, nine feet long and velcro closure the full length, loops, draw cord and shock cord. Attaches where the hammock attaches to suspension. Mimics the hammock in the way it hangs and can be adjusted so it won't compress an underquilt. PM of interested. Mule

    A couple more pictures as requested

    I was PM'd about adding pictures or Claytor/Clark type setups. Here they are.
    The one of the hanging hammock simply shows the setup I use going from loops in the hammock to cinch buckle web assembly, to webbing going to the tree.
    The other shows some cinch/ring buckle web assemblies I put together.
    I don't at the moment have a good quality photo of my setup. Hope this generic, fuzzy one can help temporarily. Mule
