Finishing Wraps

Different Strokes For Different Folks

You are all on a similar track with the loop under the final wraps but keep in mind that the larger Diameter looping material
will also take up additional space against the blank and will relax the final tension that you applied in those final wraps.

If you are applying an inlaid turn in contrasting colour or a thread trim ring you will find that the thin thread as in rod [loop]winding material will allow you to develop a tighter wrap. You then pull the tag ends at 90 D. to the blank which creates a tent over the wrap,, cut close to the tent,,, tent snaps shut and burries the tag ends
