    The MDP Guyot Bail


    ADVERTISEMENT
    This came in with the new sheaths, it's a guyot bail that Marion made out of some small cable. He was apparently glad I decided against asking him to make a kydex case for my guyot bottle and gave me this as a thank you......as I recall he also questioned my mental status....but anyway...

    This is how it came in the box






    This is how I tried it out.















    I haven't boiled water in the guyot yet, I didn't have time today, but I think I got a cool piece of kit...wish that happened everytime I change my mind about something

    It's a perfect addition for SS Guyot bottle owners

    Marion generously gifted me one in the Pay It Forward thread.

    Thanks again bro.

    I'm loving mine. It fits great and will even fit loosely over a Kleen Kanteen. They're a better design than most I've seen. Thanks again MDP!

    Stainless steel bicycle brake cable works, but for real ultralight stuff, try some derailleur cable as its thinner.

    Thanks for the help AeroNautical. I am from Texas, and don't know what derailleur cable is.We are seperated by a common language.

    Derailleurs are what shift the chain between gears on a bicycle.

    The fine stainless steel cable which operates the gear system, AKA 'derailleur' (from the French 'to derail').

    I made one (similar, but different) for my guyot too, Mist.

    Be carefull though.... I had one of the aluminum crimps melt on me and drop the whole damn thing in the fire. It was negligence on my part, but still... it's obviously not dummy proof... lol.

    I switched out the aluminum bits with steel tubing and its good to go.

    Ooh...good idea. If that ever somehow happens to mine then I'll have to try that.

    At first sight I thought it's a snare wire.
    Now this is a cool addition.

    Flix used a stainless steel leader and split rings, no potential for alloy melt.
