Anybody know how to splice swede wire?
On the west coast we call it “Swede wire” every where else it is called “Spring Lay wire”. The wire is of 6 strand construction. You splice it with a Liverpool splice, with the last tuck over one and under two to lock it.
This has been about 30 years since I learned this. What I recall is you treat it as a normal wire, and splice it with the wire strands around the wire strands and the rope strands around the rope. The core is cut and burried. and I dont recall seeing a manual for this, We just ‘wung it’
ROGER! Thanx for the info guys I’ll giv’er a shot!
I’ve watched lots of wire and line splicing videos on Youtube. (yes, my life is that sad)
It be a liverpool eye splice also be lock with this order strand 6 then strand 2 then strand 4 and be around one strand and under 2 strands
