Lightbulb Paracord Corner....post your projects!



Advertise Here

Any vet will tell you.....it's the NCO's/Non-comms that are the backbone of the service.....but at least in the Army it was 550 (para) cord and 100mph (duct) tape that helped us hold it together

I don't know if it warrants it's own section....but maybe a future sticky .....but I wanted to start a link for the new and old folks to go to for different Paracord Projects that many have done.

So post your favorite project and add this thread to your subscriptions to stay up-to-date.

That being said.......post away!

I think I added a bunch of pictures and some links to one of the other threads you had links to OldWarrior.

Mebbe I can go cut and past it into this one..

Saw... saw... saw.... glue.. glue... glue....

I've been tying bracelets and just about everything else for the past 3 months pretty steady and off and on before that. I'm working on what used to be Shemya, AFB, AK and it's now run by contractors. I've been tying bracelets and selling them in the billeting office for $5.00 a piece and most of that goes to the Morale Fund to buy things for the Craft Center or Fitness Center here.

Here are a few things I've tied. My apologies for the double post..

I've got to say, the video before this post is one of the worst ones I've seen for learning the most simple of bracelets to tie. I tie 2 color Cobra knot bracelets in about 15 minutes and that includes "welding" the two colors together which isn't even addressed in that video.

One blog I go to on a regular basis is stormdrane. That's not a spelling error, that's how it's spelled. Google that and you'll spend a couple of hours going through all his posts. He's a great tyer and has many links on his page showing where he learned to tie the different things he shows.

On Youtube, there's a guy called Tying It All Together (TIAT) that has over 100 videos on tying different knots. They're pretty much THE best videos for learning how to tie the knots.

The ones I've had the hardest time finding a good tutorial on are the Turkshead and the Monkey's fist. I can't count the number of times I screwed up a Monkey's fist, now I can tie one and have it completed in less than 15 minutes. Turksheads are very popular and there are hundreds of tutorials on them.

If you have any questions, let me know. If I can't answer them right off, I'll go find the answer because that's the best way to learn.

BTW, the bottom three bracelets on the 6th photo are the ever popular Cobra Knot bracelets. They sell better than anything I make by at least 10 to 1. I always use buckles and most of the tutorials don't show how to use them. If you need help with that part, I'd be more than happy to help. I can tie the 6 bracelets in that photo in the time it takes me to smoke a Backwoods Cigar.

Ive got a few...got some pics...but need more

I been able to get 30 and sometimes 40 foot ungutted 550 into a single soloman bar by using the 550 wet and tightning down the braid over 6-8 center strands instead of the usual 2 strands...its less bulky than the double bar but is wider.

The 2nd to last pic (with the blue jogging pants background) is one that TIAT just posted yesterday but I used 4 strands instead of his 2...this was my first try at it and I need to tighten it up but its purdy

OK so I had too much time, coffee, HK snaps and paracord on my hands and made a few rifle slings, including a single point sling for my 'little black rifle'

I just made a hat band for my hat that I use when we hike/camp and the kids have bracelets. I would like to make a sling for my bow.

I'm a college student. It would be great to figure out something that I can put on my backpack that looks like it is meant to be there so that I always have paracord with me. Maybe a large handle?

I just made tiny little bracelets for my new nephews (born 9 days apart lol)....they are so small they can fit on 3 of my tiny fingers (just for size reference I wear a size 5 wedding band).....but amazingly have 5 foot of uncut~ungutted 550 paracord.


Enjoy......
