Assessment: Part 1-Tracking Stick
Date: Part 1 of this project was completed on 11MAY2014
Materials on workbench - xanthorrhoea stalk, packet of assorted o-rings, measuring tape
Finished product. Xanthorrhoea stalk sharpened on thin end, notched at 4ft mark, 4 x o-rings added.
I chose this xanthorrhoea stalk since it's my new medium-duty hiking stick. In addition to its uses as a hiking stick, hutchie pole and GoPro "Gandalf" mount, it's now also modified for use as a tracking stick. It's just over 5ft long, so I notched it at the 4ft mark. It has two different sizes of o-ring due to the natural taper in the stalk.
Part 2 of this assessment will cover the construction of a folding scale rule.
