Hey all,

Does anyone have a nifty method of keeping the two damn wires together in the blade when wiring an epee?

Cheers,

Mesomphalos.

Hey Mesomphalos,
I've always found that if you keep the blade bent when rewiring that it keeps the wires in place and together. I've done a good few for my club and have a system set-up at home to make the procelss that bit easier

Hope this helps, happy rewiring:)

I always re-wire with a bend to allow for flexing. However - they still don't fit together perfectly.

Any futher ideas/hints?

:dizzy:

Leon Paul make little plastic things ('Epee Rewire Jig') that hold the wire down in the forte. I don't have that much trouble as long as the wire is taut. Perhaps a dab or superglue or even blutack?

I do "tack" the wire with superglue holding the wire in place with a cotton bud until it sets (bot a second or two) before i glue it up properly and it works perfectly.

Haven't ever used the LP rewiring jig, but i'd assume it's only usefull if you've got LP epees

Cheers everyone!

I'll have a go at the tacking thing, and i'll have a look at the LP jig.
