The there's also the question of how close you live to actual climbing.... Without a nearby after-work crag, making gear is a nice alternative to watching tv.

FWIW, one of the limitations back in the days with machine nuts chocks was that they were symmetric. A big improvement was that they made asymmetrics which gave you 3 size options. I'm into making things by hand (v-thread hooks, fishing poles, lures, arrows, etc.) , but the question comes to me as if you have the free time, would you rather climb or make equipment?


Recalling my reading, back in the day of gathering nuts along the railroads tracks on the approaches to the gritstone quarries, the fellas realized early on that giving the nuts a taper, like modern nuts have, improved performance - they shaped them in the 60's.
