Other names: ? Pudding Splice
Figured: p.25. fig 1
Note:T.B’s description of a Pudding Splice
somewhat resembles this, but for some pur-
pose a marline spike & rat-tail are ne-
cessary to his process. His account is un-
intelligible to the writer. The picture he
somewhat resembles ^ is rather like fig 3. below.
Mr Haslope, apparently trying to follow
T.B., is equally unintelligible. The marline-
spike & rat-tail are duly mentioned, but
the yarns “are to be interwoven in the
usual manner”. That is to say, the Pudding
Splice (Haslope) is some form of short, or
perhaps Grecian Splice, which the Pudding
Splice (T.B.), judging by the picture,
certainly is not. If the Twist Splice is
a new form invented by the writer some-
thing is gained; if it is essentially the
same as the Pudding Splice of T.B. nothing
is lost, and the splice at any rate merits
an intelligible decription.
