I have not used it, but have heard good reports about it.

I assume you are looking to do some of the more complex decorative butt wraps. There are some pretty good books out there too. Dale Clemens has a few.

This may not be the correct way. I will try to explain how I do it. So if there is some part of this that doesn't make sense let me know.

I measure the diameter at the butt and the diameter at the end of the wrap figure out the circumference of both. I then subtract the tip end from the butt end and divide that by the number of repeats of spacing. Then I add that to each repeat starting with the circumference of the tip end at the butt end so that I wind up with the butt end circumference at the wrap end.

I will say that I have the best results if I don't add the full difference. In other words of the difference is .012 I usually add .010 and it comes out pretty good. If I do the full difference I have the opposite problems closing just not as bad.

Say you start out with the circumference @ the tip end of .900 and the butt wrap of .972 and you will have 6 repeats.

.972 - 900 = 72

72 / 6 = 12

spacing would be starting from the butt end(remember I don't add the whole thing).

.900

1.810

2.730

3.660

4.500

5.460

You just need more room at the tip end to fit the threads. Not sure how you are making your marks for spacing, but in many cases the marks can be larger than the diameter of your thread. And I don't want to talk down or anything but you really need to be accurate on your measurements when you are working with closed wraps. I use a Machinist Vernier caliper to lay things out.

Hope this helps.

Not sure if you seen this how to I put together on a closed wrap Soaring Eagle How To

It's a good program. Not hard to get used to. The designer is a really nice guy. From Australia if I recall

    • better late than never!!  so far it's not to late any way!
    • I'm curious about the GenieJar.  Looks like there is a 30oz and a 17oz version.  I wonder how it works in fairly cold weather.  The nice thing about styrofoam is that it insulates against the entire water mass freezing into a minnow-sicle.  I wonder if they recommend throwing it inside your jacket or something. 
    • Agreed. I am getting nervous about the state of out financial situation now, well, I guess getting MORE nervous. Toward the back end of the contract Parise's deal isn't so bad since it was front loaded, but the term is so long. IMO we cannot afford any more buyouts. Pominville is such a buzzkill. Koivu has really played great the last 1 plus this year. No, he isn't going to win many races for the puck, but as long as he isn't on the top line I am OK with that. Staal is doing a little better than I had hoped I guess. I was hoping just for solid play, but there have been a few games where he and Coyle we so strong on the puck the opposition couldn't get control of it.
    • Hey Star, I wouldn't leave the fan there. It's going to get really HOT and will melt ! Move it to the bottom of the cabinet just left of the gas valve and have it blowing up so it pushes the heat out the vents on the top half of the heater.
    • I agree with the backing for the fly line.  Never had any problems and the stuff seems to get better with age.
    • Best thing I've found is backing for fly line.  It has no memory and virtually no knots.  It's better situated for rattle wheels because of the physical size of the backing but I've not had any problems yet with my Frabil tip-ups.  Deepest water we fish in is only 30' with normal depth of around 12'.  Our local Runnings sells 50 yard segments for like $3 each in any color. 
    • The next year my Mom and Dad cooked the turkey in one of those white roasters and it was awesome.  So I told her that too.  Big time.  It was nice and juicy too.
    • i believe it is their first year, one of the guys used to work for Ice Castle at the Pine River plant.  They have videos on you tube.  I have seen them on Facebook and you tube, the house looks nice, but it is not something I would buy.
