You could break down the crosses into three movements:Nobody cares about my extreme methods
Anyhow i found your post confusing. Fanning implies just threading the crosses. I am talking about the friction while pulling tension. Normal methods means friction is high while pulling. With the tool the friction WHILE PULLING TENSION is way less. I see that as a big benefit.
- Pulling the string through (by hand, whilst fanning the crosses)
- Applying tension
What’s the large benefit that you’re seeing there? With your specific desires, I could see how this resulting in a tighter string bed would be considered one (though that would be add odds with the inventor’s claims). Let’s assume you were happy with the tension results you obtain without the tool, and are simply trying to replicate it.
