Spur Grommets

 22 Jun 22:

Spur grommets for the Nutshell Pram's lug sail. The Barry King 3 pound nylon mallet does the heavy work driving the #2 hole punch, with self sealing mat underneath.

Spur grommets have small teeth that grip sail material better, this is the preferred type of grommet. 

There is a Goldilocks setting for grommets. Too little and the teeth don't grab the sailcloth fully, and too much will cause the ring to cut through the material and the grommet falls out. Skipper Skippervised and made sure these were set just right.
