humperdingle Posted February 1, 2016 Report Share Posted February 1, 2016 (edited) The draught excluder came today, and an old black T-shirt was consigned to experimentation <br> I think the first attempt came out really well... Used the sleeve of T-shirt, with a 4" strip of the armpit material retained as a bib.<br> I don't have any black velcro at the moment, but utilised what I had for this first prototype, and used some snaps that I normally use for leatherworking. Not ideal looking at the join, but easily covered, and I'd make it slightly different next time.<br> Here it is on 'Manakkin'...<br> Edit: photo on its side? Strange. Anyway, 6m of the excluder cost £3.39. I used 6 lines on this one and have enough left to make another one with 8 lines (and the other sleeve of the T-shirt). Total cost per neck seal - £1.70 each plus an old T. Edited February 1, 2016 by humperdingle 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
