      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

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
