Thread: A couple of variations on collapsible gambrels

    A couple of variations on collapsible gambrels

    I made up a couple of the folding gambrels, one for myself and one as a thank-you for a friend. I made his and then we thought it would be more useful without the hook and he has cut that off now. When it came to mine I thought I would make it even more portable/demountable using an "S" hook instead of a ring...

    I have set the "S" hook so that the arms can only come off the small end. They can be carried nested by taking one off and putting it on backwards.

    The other thing I did was made all the ends bullet shaped rather than pointed. They will follow a slit through the deer's leg just as well, but they are kinder on your trouser pockets and won't stick you in the thigh!

    Too kind, too kind! But I can tell you are not a welder!

    I have only just discovered the magnifying lenses you can get to go into welding helmets so I am at last able to see what I am doing and am relearning how to TIG weld!

    Hi Alantoo,

    They look the dogs danglies. Unlike Mereside I can't solder let alone weld and I was a metallurgist in a past life. So when does production begin and how much?

    Trying to only get the autumn colours in the first place then stainless steel wire brush just at the right time as it cools!

    But 316L is such lovely stuff to weld...

    They look very good to me and depending on price I woud buy one.
    It's the calibre of the shooter that counts not the calibre of the rifle.
