Knothead, I'm doing another test in my test line. Definitely my crossover looks much better now. I've stitched it and I'm at the point where I've milked everything back prior to marking for tapering. But a question (of course!): at this point in the fid's worth between where a core comes out and a cover comes out, it's thicker than normal diameter and tight, and no amount of pulling will make any more core go in, yet I've got maybe 3 fid's worth of core out at this point. Is that normal? If this is a prob, could it be because I'm working with a pretty short piece and didn't have anywhere near 5 fid's from the last mark to the slip knot?
