Malo TikiG, Captain Jack & seeksurf for your kind words. Captain Jack, after shaping the toggle, I use the wedge looking bur to first score the line where I want the cord to go all the way around. It's basically a guide for the next bur, the ball bur, so as the ball doesn't run away. I grind a fairly deep recess, between 1/3 - 1/2 diameter of cord. Then I wrap the cord firmly around the recess so that the cord has no chance of slippage, and then I lash the end with waxed thread. I did braid the cord out of 1mm waxed cotton cord. It's the usual 4 plait round braid. I just picked up some new cords at our local surplus store. They look similar to paracord but skinnier(2mm). Can't wait to braid these.
