Guides close to ferrule
Nothing wrong with that, in fact I am pleased when I can locate a guide on the female ferrule. Less wrapping. Just make sure you have enough wrap on the ferrule before your thread climbs the guide foot, especially if it is a stripper.I like to have about the depth of the male ferrule wrapped on the female.Do you have complete engagement of the male end and the guide is 3/4" past that? You may want to give a little more space on the male end.
