NEW - Single Shuttle Split CHAIN

A few weeks ago I had an email from Georgia who forwarded a message from Terry Nimmer.

Terry had been struggling with the usual ways of making the split chain and had come up with a really, really clever way of getting round his problem.   So, between the three of us (sorry, that should be four as brain cell 3 HAD to get in on the act!) we've come up with this page!!!

Now we have three ways of doing the split chain - the original way, Marie Smith's 'Fast and Easy' way and (ta de dah, roll of drums and trumpeteers trumpeting) we now have Terry Nimmer's way.   

Thanks, Terry for letting me get involved in this - I've really enjoyed the experience.  Here is one of the diagrams to 'get you interested'!!!!

Oh, don't miss tomorrow's blog post - something else that's new about to hit Tat Land!!!!

Now that is a great and easy way of doing the S.S.S.C. even I got it.

According to the ad that appeared at the bottom of this page, it's "Quick. Easy. Life-saving." I guess I'll have to try it out!

Hmm...I don't get it, yet. I'll "tune in" tomorrow, for the rest of the story!

I'm not sure I understand. It looks from the diagram like the shuttles would end up in different places. I guess I'll have to wait for the full instructions.

I still do not get it, as the first shuttle is way back on the chain. Is this supposed to be a floating ring in the middle of a chain? Cannot figure it for a split chain if the two shuttles do not end at the middle.

Mmmm - interesting. Aa chain with a new behaviour... Must test. Seem much more friendly than the ordinary split chaian.

Eager to see more of this new technique.
Also would like a link to the "fast and easy method."

Interesting concept for design building but I agree with Fox. Shuttles are not coming out at the same point to continue work.
