can you help identify kite parts Answered
I wondered if anyone could help me identify some kite parts.
I won a huge lot at the local auctions including literally thousands of kite making parts. (I have a lot more not imaged here)
Unfortunately, I have little experience with kites and the scale of the volume I have acquired is a little daunting. So I thought I would ask the experts for help :)
So far I think I have managed to identify the following:
22,000 4mm end caps
6,000 3mm spar/eap
1500 i think small douge (the yellow things that look a bit like bullet casings .. they could also be end caps but i am completely without a clue on this one)
500 rubber bands
6,000 5mm end caps
3,000 6mm end caps
8,000 3mm rubber gromets
Tones of name tags
I know there are a number of notched end caps
I think the curved bits of plastic were 3 rods can attached are called dihedrals.
The fabric parts of around 10 large kites made by greens of Burnley (a lot of them branded as the pioneer range) I haven't measured but im guessing around 9ft across
I think the lot originally came from Greens of Burnley who are no longer trading but I have found their archived site https://web.archive.org/web/20060818054031/http://www.greenskites.com/spares.asp
If you could help by identifying some of the parts/ what the pioneer range of kites is possibly a place where I can sell some of the kit (there's far to much for me to work with here) I would be relly grateful :)
PS ill put up more photo's if anyone is interested.
