Well, look at that. I thought only the whole disc turned. I had no idea that the individual hooks would spin like that as well.

I was going to make something to go into a chord-less drill, but it's beyond my engineering skills now!

Good stuff, Matt!

So they key is twisting the individual strands independently of each other?

Interesting, very interesting. I should really be thinking about so much more right now, but this is a nice little diversion.

Thanks Matt,

yep, then letting the untwisting motion create your rope if you will, it is very similar to the flemmish twist, how bow strings are made, twist the idividual strands, let them untwist together and bind together.
