Hello All-
Looking for links to your favorite splicing sites or books where I can see how to do the different types. I need to see step by step photos or video. Practicing the little I know and hope to get better.
Thanks

after wasting time with standard samson style fids (I received for free on this forum and will send to anyone who wants them), I purchased the Brion Toss Splice Tool at this forums suggestion. its is a good if not great tool.

I also bought the dvd but found it not very worth MY while because after about 20 seconds of watching it, I decided to never, ever,ever, even try to splice double braid

i also like Selma style fids a lot.

Practice with new line - not old stuff - which can be nearly impossible to splice. For some of the smaller line sizes used on cats most of the fids in a splicing kit are useless. I'd buy a small one with a hollow cavity in the back and a pusher tool. The pusher tool can be used as a fid on really skinny lines - just insert it through the middle of the outer piece of line and tape the bit that will be the inner piece to the tip and pull it back through.

I was taught by a pro rigger who used drill bits, the guts of ball point pens or about anything else that came to hand. I guess the Toss wand might offer a slight time saving for some jobs.

order a small splicing needle and a small splicing fid
you'll be able to work with anything between 3mm and 10mm

Large sewing machine needles are my weapon of choice for splicing small lines...

I use small sewing machine needles for splicing R/C sailboat control lines.

How about splicing Marstrom mainsheet 1/8 inch grey Vectran to typical 3/8 inch mainsheet? Robbie Daniel knows how but me- not so much... Sorry about lack of metric conversion. (thank you Stupid Ronald Reagan.)

Getting from 10mm (3/8) to 3mm (1/8) will take several steps, otherwise the taper is so sever, it's like a bump in the blocks.

I would go from 10mm->5mm->3mm to get a smooth transition.
