Cord wrapped epoxy soaked handles?

Could anyone tell me which is the best cord and which epoxy do you use and how do you apply it.

Bobby, some use silk, some paracord. even leather. which is my favorite. the best glue is the super penatrating super glue that you get at a plastics suppy house. is this for a hawk?

Hey Bobbie...

The following is a web page I put up last year in responce to questions about cordwrapping...

Running Dog Cordwrapping

This is but one way to do it,(actually two) and not the only way...

We use a penetrating epoxy, often called a "builders" epoxy because it is thin and brushes on nicely with a flux brush, also from the hardware store...

The polypropylene cord we use comes from American Cord and

This will make for a hardcord cordwrap that will last a long time and is replaceable...

Thanks guys , I'm starting to get some good ideas. Keep em coming. I'm looking forward to hearing more. I will probably do a few hawks when I get time.

I like that running dog method but I've been thinking of vaccuum bagging to get the epoxy even and well dispersed. A regular vaccuum cleaner and a strong polyethylene bag has worked well for me on some other projects. The low vicosity epoxy is difficult to find where I live but a vaccuum application will force regular epoxy very deep.
Wow, talk about an old thread...

Anyway, you can get super thin superglue at hobby/model builders shops.
Good luck.
Seems to be alot of reincarnating of REALLY old threads lately. They most likely don't realize how old they are.
does epoxy soaking a paracord wrapped handle help keep the paracord cleaner? i have been thinking it should, but wondered if anybody had any firsthand experience
