Topic - Wanted: Old rope!

Jack B on 18 Jul 2013 - user since 22/Jun/06
I'm looking for an old rope to use, oddly enough, in my lab.

The stretchier the better, so an old half would be good. I actually need several short lengths of 5m or so, so I could use the decent bits of an otherwise worn out rope, even one with sheath damage. I want climbing rope because it's both quite stretchy and a good energy absorber.

I'm based in Fife, but would pay postage as it'd be cheaper than buying a new one! No to mention it sounds daft cutting up a decent rope for use in a lab.

It will absolutely not be used for climbing. What it will be used for is suspending a piece of scientific equipment about 5mm above the floor. The combination of stretchy rope and heavy kit should make for excellent vibrational isolation.

So there it is: Money for old rope. Any takers?
