RC Facnor furler ..endless line installation

01 July 2014 - 02:48 AM

got an Facnor RC furler for the JIb ....  the furler line gets old and I got a new one from APS who delivered on time as usual and great job on the endless splice...

 

Now I also have some code o furler from facnor and changed their line couple weeks ago with no issues at all , now they work almost as good as the Colligo furler... but back to the RC

 

how in heaven can one install the line ? those "bells" or line guides are one piece ... hence one needs to splice the line on deck , after it gets round the drum ?  I don't like that as I don't have anybody I trust to make a splice around here...

 

Did anybody cut the drums and squeezed the endless line through ? I guess if I dremel the inside underside of each bell ?

 

Lets hear

Thanks Thor
