Crimps for #36 twine??

Postby nolabound » Sat May 15, 2010 2:22 pm

Help please! I make knotted rosaries from #36 twine, and I'm unhappy with the way my Our Father knots that attach the crucifix turn out.

Anyone know where I can buy some crimps (and crimp pliers) that will crimp two pieces of #36 twine?? My plans are to now tie the last Our Father knot and then just crimp a loop at the end hold the crucifix. Thanks!

I'm not sure if this would work. It is for rattail cord.

to you Christian families,
to you the sick & elderly,
and to you young people:
Confidently take up the rosary once again."

I think that the end cap from the previous reply will work. Here is another place you might try. ... re_Code=EB
I have made some of the coil type and attached them with super glue. you could attach them with other glues, super glue just works well for me.
I'm not sure which size to tell you to try. You may have to convert the mm dimention to inches. I used a jump ring to attach the cap to the crucifix. Hope this helps. I'd also like to hear more from people who make knotted rosarys with # 36 cord as that's just about all that I make.
