TOOLS and Cord:

-Mixed Info on Tools:
- ?: What's the weirdest tool you've used while working cord? in PCC

Cord Joining:
tip: by Brian Scocchio: I gut about 1/4 to 1/2 inch of one end, melt the other end and then stick it in the gutted end. Immediately start rolling back and forth between fingers. Lightly melt the frayed gutted end and again rub between fingers. That has worked pretty well for me.
tip: by Jake Rainsford: I reach for the sewing kit! Put the ends together as if they were being fused and stitch them together. Melt the outer sheath after its done. Holds well
tip: by Longlever Weekend Gunners: If you can hide the joint a simple staple works wonders and holds like mad.
