Yeah, I agree with Bill - you have something YOU made that works great for YOU!

Feels good to do that.

I have to give it a go.

Bob,

"Newton suggests titanium fishing wire."

I used stainless steel leader wire...

Bail wire

...for my bail.

Bail on Fosters 2 cup flat bottom cook pot

I sourced the wire from Academy's fishing "department".


@Bill,

I'm partial to rabbits and I really like the look of yours. ;-)

Excellent workmanship!


Party On,

Newton

I doubt that Ti is available as a 'fishing wire'. Try Ti welding wire instead - that is available. Also SS welding wire is very available. (Yes, I use both.)

Pot lifters: remember that Al is about 1/2 the density of Ti. This means you can use Al sheet twice as thick as the Ti for the same weight. What is not expected is that it may well prove stiffer (more stiff) than the thinner Ti. This is because the thickness of the metal turns out to be extremely significant.

Cheers
