It’s not necessary to buy a rope for a trimmer, you can make it yourself from a PVC bottle. The finished rope is strong, able to withstand significant loads.
For the manufacture of fishing line we will use:
- Bottle Cutter.
- Construction hair dryer.
Getting started creating a trimmer rope
First of all, we cut the ribbon from a plastic bottle. The wider the ribbon, the wider the rope.
One end of the rope should be fixed, for example, in a vice, and the second side is clamped in the chuck of a screwdriver.
We twist the stretched ribbon into a rope. The tape should always be in a taut state, otherwise it will unravel.
Next, use a building hairdryer to heat the workpiece along its entire length. Under the influence of warm air, the tape will curl into a strong spiral, and when it cools down, it will retain its shape.
The main thing here is not to overdo it and not overexposure the hair dryer, otherwise the tape will lose its quality, shape.
Note: to get the rope uniform in width, you need to tighten it from time to time.
If you do not have a screwdriver and a hair dryer, then do not despair. You can use any stick as a collar, and provide heating with a regular lit gas stove or lighter. However, the process of creating a rope will be more convenient if you use professional tools.
To create a rope, you can use a couple of layers of tape. It will be more elastic and more stable, but it will have more thickness.
Where is the fishing line used?
As the name suggests, this line is great for trimmer lawn mowers.
The price of industrial woods is high, and in this way it will cost you a pretty penny. In addition, you can make as much rope as you need. In addition, the store may not have the required size. By the method described above, the desired thickness can be obtained.
Such a fishing line is obtained stronger kapron the same width and can withstand maximum loads.
Often a metal cable is used instead of fishing line, as it serves for a long time. However, this is not the right decision. The cylindrical shape and rigidity allow the fishing line to easily penetrate into the grommets of the grooves and sleeves. These are far from all places where this rope is used. It can be used as a linen, for the production of bowstrings for bows and strings of musical instruments.
