    Jute string/sisal

    What diameter jute string/sisal should I buy for simple lashings i.e lashing several broom handles together to make a long reaching pole?
    Would I get away with 3mm?

    This is the one I bought for our camp last month: https://www.ropesdirect.co.uk/3/150-...-5kg-ball.html

    We used the lot. It's good stuff.

    The above two posts links to the same type of sisal string we use for small scale (e.g scout staves or broom handles) pioneering lashings

    Varous online retailers offer this, such as http://shop.sigmaci.com/StoreFront/T...0#.Wd9wI2eWyUk at 12.82

    If you have a traditional old-school hardware store near you try going in and asking how much to order a ball.
