Seriously? Pointing out that what he's working on is commercially available gets 1 star?

You've organized a entire comp to making home-made cams many of them re-creations of exisiting designs. I don't think Matt has claimed a revolutionary design. It appears to me he is just enjoying the process of designing, fabricating and using his own gear - have you watched the video? Pretty cool.

The easiest thing to do would probably be buying a couple sets of Kant Twist clamps and throw a loop of cord around the center axles. They're lighter than vertical lift clamps and have more range, so probably a better choice. Heck, you could even drill out the pins on the end of the jaws and replace the copper pads with log spiral cam lobes fairly easily.

Pretty sure it would be easier to buy a commercially made cams instead of making your own...I am surprised at the tone of your posts - kinda weird IMO.

true enough! I 've looked under that flake many times, and thought no way would it support a cam. The anticam however....hhhmmm... Hey Matt, can you leave five lever pieces of your anitcam so we can sport our way across? brutal for the 2nd that would clean such a route....

Anyone can borrow them anytime, wether for the guillotine flake or any other project. just let me know.

oh and for those interested check out my cable cam and remote controlled helicopter website at www.seatoskycam.com



My robot cable cam trolly now can climb vertically and I'm very excited to begin filming more climbing with it.

Also I just found out that the National Geographic TV show 'Amazing' that I worked on with the cable cam last summer and winter with Reel Water Productions will start to air July 9th on the Nat Geo Channel (93 for those in BC, on fridays and saturdays) and the first episode will show a professionally filmed version of my net climbing story.

Also filmed by us and showing in 'Amazing' is mountain biking in Washington, base jumping off the chief and fly by of the chief from jumping out of a helicopter with a wing suit, ice climbing on Icy BC near Cache Creek, slack lining across the north gully of the Chief with Robin Avery, kayaking the Box canyon of the Ashlu and sea kayaking the Butze rapid in Prince Rupert. Some of the video can be seen on our demo reel at http://www.seatoskycam.com

enjoy

Hey matt, rather than having a bolted bar or some sort of pulley system to make your cam bigger/smaller, why not do a notched bar that can slide in and out with a locking mechanism on it? Somewhat similar to how a ski boot works. You would be able to adjust it to the exact size of your pinch in seconds.

I was going to go that route just after I finished the first version of the Anticam and then came up with the threaded bar idea. The threaded bar gives more incremental adjustment than a notched bar and can be undone after a fall. The notched bar would jam to the point you would need a hammer to get it off. But it would be faster to attach. It is funny how solving one problem can create a few more.

Thanks for the input

That is impressive design and implementation. Kudos for staying with the concept and seeing it through.
