Interesting FLYING WIRE idea

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
There's a fellow in Sweden making flying wires to order. They seem to be pretty high quality, if a little pricy. What caught my eye is the attachment system. Essentially, his clevis threads onto the end of a bicycle spoke, and that then keys into the plates he makes. Ingenious, and could be fabricated at home with a little care, using spokes made 4-40 or 2-56 with a die and Dubru metal clevis ends. Use the clevis for adjusting tension. His hardware looks good too. Anyway, his web site is Pictures better than my explanation....I am thinking of getting his attachment stuff and using the Nelson flat wire (because I already have some and I am pretty nervous about ordering something fabricated to the exact length - rather screw it up myself). -Mike

I've been doing somwthing simular with wires for awhile. I simply get a threaded 256 wire and thread it into a nylon cleveis. Snip one arm of the clevis off and screw it into your hardpoint. The other end can be attached the same way or with a clevis into a horn. Here's a pic.
