I thought I posted this earlier... but didn't hit the button until now... lol.

Yea that was a good move. Easy to make complicated and jack it up, simpler is better. Do you remember the Figure8 that Alfred E.M. had where the maker took the cutoff and welded it back on as a palm swell? I bet there is a photo floating around here. Never saw another like it.
I sure miss Alfred 馃懡
Here's his -

I don鈥檛 think I trust them rods it鈥檚 not really welding. I think it鈥檚 more of a solder thing it not biting into the metal
He said it was tig welded... but he didn't go all the way around. Are they stainless or aluminum?
Do you use a helium/ argon mix?

I went to a climbing shop to get a few of these for slingshots.. They had no idea what they were. Did you get yours online?
Ya Amazon we pay little more than our USA 馃嚭馃嚫 friends but we can get them . You never use these to climb there not stamped with any rating of weigh or anything like that . Sure a stamped one be more 20 dollars for two but make a good slingshot

Yeah to the climbing community they鈥檙e simply known as figure 8鈥檚. Kind of strange they didn鈥檛 know what you were talking about but probably saved you a decent chunk of change. Get the ones off of Amazon that aren鈥檛 climbing rated and they鈥檙e way cheaper. Still excellent for slingshots though I鈥檓 sure.
