Glad to read you have all enjoyed the read. Thanks!

I'll try to post a few more photos when I get a chance.

If you do not want to give your email away I understand.

Great Story and Great pictures, Thanks!

Roger, we used a door handle with a towel wrapped around it to protect the strings when pre-stretching. In reference to the starting clamp, I believe you are speaking about the photo with Doug. If so, I believe this is how he starts his mains, but not sure of his exact procedure.

Here is my email:

(update--I posted the above before I read the article--very nice--one nit--shouldn't the reference in the third paragraph be to "Warren" (not Norman) Bosworth? I thought the late, great Warren Bosworth was Jay's dad?)
Max, working with Chuck, along with all the other guys was a great pleasure. Chuck is a real nice guy and great resource with a lot of knowledge. Hopefully, will have the pleasure of working with him again in the future.

PS: Thanks for pointing out the error. I corrected it.
