Cable Drums, Even More Refined!.

Following my last post on this on the Guild Forum Jim Snowdon set me a bit of a challenge – copied here for context.
“Very neat. Now, all you have to do is band them, and if you are feeling really enthusiastic, model the tail of the inner end of the cable where it pokes through the side of the drum and is secured.

Then, the real test is to load them into a wagon and rope them correctly….

Jim”

Jim went on to give me a big helping hand towards meeting the challenge by posting a link to this Youtube video https://youtu.be/MJ-8X20w3eE – Well worth a watch even if only the first 2 or 3 minutes

So this is how I got on – Bands from black insulation tape and ye olde faithful coffee stirrers for the cover for the cable tail.

And isn’t it typical that a gap in the banding on one of them only shows up when you have taken the photo….
