Step 3: Wind it up!!!

Its a long and boring process but wind up the paracord by twisting the bolt.
<p>how long is the bolt</p><p>is the nut on the outside or in the container</p>
I'm thirteen and I think this kind of stuff is awesome.Brilliant idea!
<p>Same Legit</p>
<p>maybe use a drill to speed the winding process? just a thought...</p>
great storage idea
make a hole at back for carabine
Briliant idea for sailing
Wow! The finished product looks pro! U should sell these on EBay or something!
I think it would cost more to make than people would actually buy them for
simple is best <br>:-)
Hey man, I'm fourteen also and i think its great how you're into this kind of stuff. I thought it was a great idea and i cant wait to try it myself but i think that instead of winding it up by hand i'm going to get a little help from my friend, the power drill. -- Live long and prosper
Thanks, I found it easier to do by hand but whatever your more comfortable with. I would recommend a slower speed when using the drill. Its cool to know I'm not the only 14 year old on here.
A great idea for Hunters, Campers and general outdoorsman. I would use a Lock Nut or a Nylock&reg; Nut to prevent it from backing off in your pocket, while allowing you to have it as tight as you want. I would also drill a small hole through the bolt to thread the cord through (if you have the bits).
Thanks, I don't know how well I could get a hole through the bolt with my drill but you could probably do it with a drill press.
Alternatively you could put the end of the bolt into the drill and wind it up mega quickly XD
I was condisering that but I wanted to do it as cleanly as possible so I could have as much paracord as possible.
About how much cord did you end up fitting into it?
around 35 feet
oops, i didnt realize it was in the 'ible itself.
You should add a sharp blade to the bit that opens and closes so it cuts it without needing anything else. Or you could mount part of a Stanley knife blade to the bottom of the opening and push the orange opening down onto the blade to cut the para cord.
that's a good idea
Wow awesome idea!
This is awesome. Great idea.
every once in a while a person gets a great idea like this one. Great job keep it up
I LOVE this idea! but what about the extra piece of bolt just sticking out of the back? wouldn't that be uncomfortable to have in your pocket?
I got a perfectly sized bolt that only sticks out of the nut about a milimeter. I'm not sure of the exact size
Great idea !
I don't understand why it has to be a long and boring process when you obviously have an electric drill there.
That's really cool!
