COuld I possibly trade someone for one of those shuttle-needle things? I currently cut my strands, many of them, and knot them together. I would like to do proper netmaking, but cant yet

I am unable to trade for netting needles (that is how I got  most of mine).  I do have some suggestions.  You need something to handle a long length of cord so that it does not become tangled.  It does not have to be a traditional netting needle.

Easy to bend from a length of coat hanger
...

My first netting needle was a wooden ruler with a notches cut out of each end as shown in my instructions  http://pineapple.myfunforum.org/about551.html  I have even made such a needle out of cardboard when nothing else was available.

You can buy needles from commercial fishery suppliers such as
http://www.memphisnet.net/category/netsupplies

Timann,
I am happy to see a new netmaker develop.  Now you can try some of the tubular/circuolar nets described at the netmaking forum.  Even try a hammock.


Arcane Tinker
Although proper tension is required you do not need to have a death grip on the gauge as you realize.  Although it will not help relieve your gauge hand problem you might want to consider the following method.  I originally promoted it as a way of oncreasing your net making speed.  I have since found that it is easier to teach (and learn) this method from the beginning.  I do not teach the traditional method any longer at my net making demonstrations.  Give it a try.
At one of my net making demonstrations years ago a spectator who was a tatting expert suggested this method.  It eliminates the need to make a bight to the left of the loop you are tying into.  This results in a increase in the speed of the netting process.
1.  Instead of making the bight (loop) to the left, bring the needle to the right with the cord around the back of your hand.
2.  Bring the needle behind the 2 strands as usual, the cord stays around the back of your hand.
3.  Back your hand out of the loop and tighten as usual.

My first net project. A giant purse net starting 10 meshes wide expanding to 24 wide, 50 meshes long, 2" gauge. 18# mason twine.

Makes a dandy hammock for the kids

Arcane Tinker,  I can see why your hand did get tired after a project like that.  Congratulations - very nice.  Tony

I`m an eager whittler and have for some time known I`d have to make a netting needle/shuttle.  Not least because the one I had was a thin plastic item made for thin cord, I suppose monofilament.
So I made one from the same kind of wood I used as gauge (20 millimeter wide, 6 millimeter thick).  Didn`t take long time with aid of knife, the saw on my Leatherman and a needle file.  With a larger gauge and slightly thicker jute I tested it and work fine.

I made a spare needle as a future student has already requested some net-making lessons Wink

Notice the lanyards on the gauges.  Work great for my net making.

PS Arcane Thinker, that was quite a project.  I could need a new hammock but I`d need to work on my patience first.

Nice woodwork and netmaking timman

Arcane Tinker made a giant purse net into a person size hammock.  Here is a normal size purse net made into a storage hammock.  

The grand neices stuffed toys show capacity of net capacity of net.  I tied 9 loops onto a metal ring.  Used a 2" wide gauge.  I increased one mesh at the end of each subsequent row up to 18 meshes across. Then began to decrease one mesh down to 9 and attached to ring at other end.  I next attached side cords.These side cords are a few inches shorter than the netting and  give a "belly" to the netting.

Nice. could you make a net slinging bag with approx 1 inch holes? I would be very, very happy to trade for that, even if I wont use it for anything but a pattern!
Anyway, I am gonna make one of these from BL
http://www.memphisnet.net/product/4644/needles_nylon
Or just use a piece of wire:D

Asemery, I think you set a new record by including Raggedy Andy and a teddy bear in a Primitive Weapons thread....and they still look happy.

squirrelslinger,
How big a net do you want?  I used a 1 1/4" wide gauge for these nets.  They have a drawstring at the top for adding items and a slit opening for easy access without undoing the drawstring.

Haven't been able to figure this water bottle carrier out. Found a tutorial for a paracord holder netted up like a gill net, but no step by step instructions for this type. Would one of you netters do a tutorial? Asemery? timann? Arcane Tinker?

walter, I went to the pineappe forum and found the tutorial for using the chain start for tubular/curcular nets so I could get started.  When the tube was reasonably long I used what I had learned fron the other thread, by closing the bottom and adding the handle.  
Looking at my pictures I realize I took them before I added the handle Cheesy

Walter,
 Check the fourth post in this thread.  I have outlined there how I made the carrier.  Post again if you have any problems.  Cheers. Tony
