Thread: Sewlin? Lines. Where to buy?

    Sewlin? Lines. Where to buy?

    Alright folks

    Just a quick one, does anyone know if it is possible to buy sewlin lines? Hope i'm spelling it right.
    I'm sure i have seen some advertised somewhere years ago and i thought were fairly reasonably priced

    Can mind as a young YT boy that was my homework for many a nite slashing feed bags and tying them onto rope, dinae fancy doing it again if i can help it.
    Or has anyone any quick ways of making it?

    Come on Countryboy you've nothing else to do now the dark nights are here. Get those strips of feed bag going again. I always used polypropylene baler cord to tie the strips to. It's great fun making up hundreds of yards of sewelling. I am sure that if you really get stuck in you will enjoy it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I hope this helps.

    I used to use sewlin on a few of my drives and found making it to be the easiest and cheapest way to do it, plus if you make it yourself it's made the way you want it.

    Easy done bud. Get some bags tell the lads to bring a knife with them. And get em slashing at the next shoot day. Or get John onto it.. Hes plenty time on his hands!!!!

    Cheers folks, so the advice is dinae be so lazy and get slashing

    The sad thing is i actually save holed feed bags just incase in need them for jobs like this

    I mind seeing a price years ago somewhere and i was sure it was only 15 quid for 100m i thoought that was mega cheap, and thats why a remembered it, infact too cheap (always thought it might be wot we called 'bunting' used to hang it from the gaolpost for electric cable on big civil jobs)

    Old keper when u call it baler cord is that baler twine or do u use thin poly prop rope? Still have the nightmare about threading all thoose strips in throu the braids of the rope. The boss thought poly rope was better as tangled less than baler twine.

    Alright nutty, can u imagine them all slashing away in that caravan, would have to have the ambulance waiting outside, it would be an accident waiting to happen
    Think john's too busy shooting now, he's away all the time now, lucky bugger

    I used polyprop: baler cord, slit the feed bags into roughly three or four inch strips, I found the length of one side ideal then knot the strips on to the line using a clove hitch. I used to keep in rolled onto old garden hose reels. it all worked well enough for me.
