Good stuff John!


Do you have plans for the A5 grade VII haul Bag?

I've been looking for one and if I can't find it I want to try and get someone to make it for me...


Zac
I do this for fun...

Very cool, and good of you, D. Thanks.
Say no to limbers, excavators and retro-bolters. No matter how much he smiles.

Thanks so much.  I've made two backpacks now (1 a haulbag and 1 a small pack/rope bucket) and it's interesting to see the order in which someone who knows what they're doing assembles the components.  To make minimum wage I'd have to be selling packs for $750 though.....

Can we get some photos of these things posted up?  What did the originals look like?  What are you monkeys making and what do they look like?


Keep it up.  Awesome JM is sharing these plans!
