Joining Two Pieces Of Net.

Recommended Posts

To join two nets again the cutting out is important have a look at the drawing each knot is numbered in sequence. All the knots when joining two bits of net are side knots, if done correctly and with the same twine you will be hard pushed to see the join.

 

The thick lines are where the net should be cut.

I have used the white twine here for it to stand out better.

As I stated all the knots are side knots have a look at the net repair post to see how they are made.

No I use a bar threaded through the selvedges. I usually put a dozen or so meshes from each side on the bar. I have cup hooks screwed into the ferret cage about 2 feet apart and thread the bar through the cup hooks. That is the way I add selvedges to a net.

Or you can use a frame like the one I use to mend nets.
