Default Video - My new way of starting mains

I have to admit my inspiration for this method came from 'drakulie's' method of starting mains. In his method he placed the starting clamp inside the frame against the grommet. I am placing the starting clamp outside the frame against a portion of the grommet that can't move.

I also do not like to use a starting knot to start my crosses so I use the method in the video to start my crosses. That's included in the video. I like to tie off my crosses (top and bottom) after all the crosses are in because the stringbed is stiffer and I think I get less drawback. Enjoy:
