Even though Jaime protests that he could never improve on Brion Toss's instructions, I think you'll find
that he has certainly enhanced them and made them MUCH easier to understand for the visual learner.

The Liverpool Eyesplice is the cornerstone for splicing in wire rope... the strongest and most secure
eyesplice that can be made, but it requires some skill and patience to do correctly.  A "Molly Hogan"
may be a quick and dirty solution to yor problem, but it'll always be in danger of pulling out just when
you need it most.  A properly done Liverpool will not do this and is the safest, most effective metot of
putting an eye at the end of a wire rope for standing rigging, cargo slings or what-have-you.

Jaime White is a Master Rigger who lives in San Francisco and who travels the globe doing ship's
rigging work on modern and historic ships.  His website
HERE is full of information, interesting facts,
pictures, advice and knowledge that you simply cannot find anywhere else,  either on the net or in
person.  One could transport him back 150 years and he would still be able to not only make a living, but
be one of the authorities to whom other riggers would defer.  It is a privilege to be able to present you
with this tutorial and a bit of his knowledge.   He may be reached at the email link on his site.
