    I did it ! First time trying to do a locked brummel and I did it on 1.75 Zing - It.

    Photo attached so even I can believe it happened.
    So you're going to frame that photo and put it in the center of the mantle with family photos on each side?

    Thanks, I guess it will be easier with Amsteel in a larger size.

    It was a challenge as they say.

    It will be fun.

    Yours looks ready to use to me!
    Yes it is hard to count the lines to taper on Zing-It.

    Thanks GrayDog, I used an old electric guitar string I saved from my son's last restringing job. I found that is sharper to use than .24 guage florist wire.

    SilvrSurfr, That is a great idea ......Maybe not though...my wife thinks I am already a little strange....this might prove it to her.
    Take care,

    What did you use? Dental floss?

    I use a strand of wire from a bicycle brake cable. The cable is kind of curly still and I didn't think it would work too well, but surprisingly, it does. I doubt that the wire will be around for a long time before it breaks, but that is ok, I have a lot of brake cables.

    I tapered the end of the Zing-it and passed a small guitar string through the line and then repeated. I then put the guitar string up through the middle of the Zing-it, caught the tapered end again. i started to pull it through but found it easier to hold the guitar string end with a pair of needle nose pliers, much easier on the hands that way. It takes quite a bit of force to start the bury but it gets easier. Milk the line over the inserted line and you are done.

    I hope this makes sense and helps you


    Hey GrayDog,

    Any small wire will do, the brake cable wire sounds like it will work great also.

    cool stuff buddy!!

    pretty impressed that you actually tapered the 1.75...i don't bother to taper 1.75 or 2.2
    Bring a GPS...It's awkward when you have to eat your buddies.

    I keep breaking the brake cable...thanks for the tip, I'll borrow, one of my son's strings...he'll never miss it...so far, he hasn't missed the brake cable from his bike.
