Re: 3D printing of kite plastic parts: low friction sliding ring

@LFAK - Now you're being completely unfair on two fronts. 1. The DynaBar has been used successfully for many years now and JayBar has been one of the most responsive companies to customer suggestions. Slandering this person/company in inappropriate when all they are attempting to do is innovate. 2. ...

Re: Megaloop Boardoff

@Peter - Are you being a little thick here? SENDIT! wasn’t talking about fatties - he was joking about the balls it takes to do that stuff - and how big they are (hence heavy). You did actually get this, right?

Re: 3D printing of kite plastic parts: low friction sliding ring

I don't know what I'm talking about for sure. I simply ask you be cautious about being irresponsible stating what can be achieved with a home based 3D printer. To advocate that the same product with the same safety characteristics with a home 3D printer is ludicrous. As a consolation, please allow m...

Lets disregard for a moment if you think the design is right or wrong.
How about "safe" or "unsafe"? Not something we should ignore.

Re: cant reach full depower

randycasburn, show us a better photo of how you are attaching the SS ring to the spreader bar. I'm guessing from the photos I've seen the small metal loop on the Option spreader bar is too small to connect the QR directly? Also, I think it's very likely that the QR can be too close to the spreader ...

Re: cant reach full depower

Awesome thanks for the info I’ll try to shorten the chicken loop... There is another alternative if you don't unhook or don't plan to. This is not for everyone but is perfect to me! Get rid of th hook, chicken loop and fowling donkey thing altogether. If you zoom the image you'll see a Cab Fireball...

Re: 3D printing of kite plastic parts: low friction sliding ring

Right. I knew it was SLS printed from the images. I’m certain it will be great for a long while. I was referring to you advocating the printing of the “at home” as you did previously. People are unlikly to spend $2000+USD on a printer for this purpose. But they might try to print it on their $100 pr...

Re: 3D printing of kite plastic parts: low friction sliding ring

It is a small saving but it is a starting point. Sure. I suppose someone could claim that clipping toenails reduces pollution, so we should all buy toenail clippers. I get ya. Anyway, on the the next point: Some of our parts and pieces are put under tremendous physical load. I can imagine much chea...
