You will need some para-cord, 10 gauge solid insulated wire, a lighter, and wire cutter.
Your needs will determine what sizes to use, but for this purpose I will be making a universal helping hand. Meaning it will work for most purposes. I have in my junk box a piece of 10 gauge wire that is 28 inches long. I'll use it as is. One key thing to know is that you need to always cut your para-cord a few inches longer than the wire you'll be using .
O.k. I have a wire 28 inches long so I'll cut a piece of paracord 32 inches long and remove the inner cords. Then I'll feed the wire inside the outer paracord and smooth it out. Then I will cut off the excess cord leaving about 1/4 inch hanging past the end of the wire. This will be melted to keep it from coming off the wire or unraveling. Once you've melted both ends you are finished.
If you can think of any other good uses for it I'd like to know. Leave a comment please.
THANK YOU for looking and I hope this is helpful to you.
