There's a separate link there where someone used a fully threaded rod and an eyebolt. That seems a lot easier, if angled a bit weird.

Gimli: It's true you don't see many Dwarf-women. And in fact, they are so alike in voice and appearance, that they are often mistaken for Dwarf-men.

Neat!

... I have a vague memory of seeing these done simply tied with rope once upon a time.
Possibly in Whelen? Probably in in some 1970's back-to-the-land book?

Anyhow, I don't remember details, but suspect it was something like this:

Not saying it's the best solution, simply a different place on the weight/time/comfort tradeoff. :)

Want to make me some tri-bolts?

I would If I were closer to you, it would cost more to ship them out to you than they are on tandy


I believe I AM close to you and reckon I could weld up a fair few of these in short order, if you're still on the lookout.
