Well, heck...that's what I get for giving 'half' effort .
You are correct, of course. 1/4" per radius, not 1/2 of 1/4"
Where's that head-smack smiley when I need it?

On the topic of strings, the PT 280 was one of the frames that played wonderfully(IMO) with 18 or 19 ga Kevlar at a very low tension(45 or so) on the mains paired with a skinny playable multi at normal tension(58-ish) on the crosses. I could teach or play with that combo daily.
