Ive done a search and cant really find what im looking for so i decided to ask!
Can anyone tell me how to fold cathedrals? how much kevlar (length and width) is best to use for a medium sized head? And how to attach it to chains? I dont really want to buy any coz i wanna do this myself, but i cant really find any info anywhere on it.
Please help, Fanks!
Aim high and you'll know your limits, aim low and you'll never know how high you could have climbed.

Posted:if you go to where it says news at the top, and then articles, somewhere theres an article about how to fold cathedrals
with little animations and everything.
ive got what id call medium sized heads on mine, and each is made from a big bolt (with a loop on the end to attach to chains), some huge washers, and a couple of nuts tightened against each other and about 3ft of 2 inch wide wick, purchased from airtime in exeter
i got the hard bits from a hardware shop.
edit: just gone to check article was still there, and its here
o and these are cool too
Me train running low on soul coal They push+pull tactics are driving me loco They shouldn't do that no no no

Posted:I've posted my recipe as well.
FWIW, the formula I use to figure the length of kevlar is
[number of folds] x [width of kevlar + 0.4" for foldover] x 2 (two strips). So if you plan on having 10 folds per wick, and your kevlar is 2 inches wide, you'll need two 24" strips to make one wick. Or 96" total. EDITED_BY: adamrice (1079970881)
