Selma - Rope splicing

Selma - Rope splicing
What can I do with my Selma?

How to hook the strand or braided line

Three ways of splicing three stranded rope.

Eye splice on hollow braided line.

A locked eye splice on hollow braided line.

How to join hollow braided lines.

NB! The lenght of a hollow braided 
splice should be at liast ten times 
diameter of rope.






Eye splice on double braided line (Samson Line)

Equipment required: Selma – fids (-(needless), knife, marking pen and tape. Find the right Fid (Needle) for measuring an splicing. 
If the line is too tight, use a smaller Fid (Needle). Bevel-cut an tape the line-end.

Mark the rope one Fid (Needle) length from the end. A. 
Mark again at B according to the loop size. Tie a knot 
about 60 in. from B.

Extract the core at B using a small Selmafid (Needle). 
Take out the slack from the cover by sliding your hand 
from the knot towards B.

Withdraw one more Fid –(Needle-) length of core from B 
and mark this point C. Withdraw another 2/3 of a 
Fid (Needle) and mark it D on the core.

To make the splicing easy, extract some more core 
and make a lock on jusing a small Fid near B. Find the 
right Fid (Needle) for splicing. Feed cover-end into Fid 
(Needle) at C and take it out at D. Remove Fid (Needle) 
and poll cover back into core until end is hidden.

Attach th core-end into Fid (Needle) and insert 
Fid (Needle) near C and out of cover one in. past B.

Pull the core through the cover until the slack is taken up.

Get the splice (C-D) into cover by sliding the cover back 
over until it reaches point A. Point A and B should now meet. 
Cut off the exposed core and strech the eye until the 
core goes under the cover.

You have made a perfect eye-splice. If you want to 
insert a thimble, the eye-size is to be calculated less than 
the circumfence of the thimble. 
If desired a thimble can be inserted. Press cover towards thimble, and secure by whipping with twine.


Splicing tree stranded ropes

Untwist the strands and make 1, 2 and 3 ready. 
Decide eye size. Put strand 1 under upper strand of 
rope. Turn eye anticlockwise until strand 2 is up.

Put strand 2 under strand of rope next to cord 1. 
Turn eye anticlockwise until 3 is up.

Put strand 3 under cord of rope next to strand 2. 
You have now made one round of splicing. Tighten 
up strands after each round.

Start second round by going with strand 1 over strand of 
rope and under the next. Do the same with strand 2 and 3.

Do four rounds with all strands. Cut ends near 
rope and the splice is finished.
