Today Blackheath hosted the start of the London marathon and I had decided that a rest would be a good idea.  Alternative venues could have been available…

I have acquired a pair of upholstery pliers which may help with the replacement of D rings on the JMH kites.  Slots in the blades and a spring hold the open ring prior to closing into the end cap.  The Composite Kite (Della Porta): Eight Rhomboids 1993 is the next one to tackle.  It has 12 caps so reasonably manageable.  The Asymetric Kite Stack 1995 has 72 caps so I will have to be sure of the method before undertaking that project.  I need to figure out heating treatment to relieve stress in the cold worked stainless steel first!

I’ll probably have some simple repair work on leading edge mesh to keep me busy in the meantime.

One Sky One World next Sunday so I wonder what the weather will bring.  At the moment one of the forecasts looks promising.
