    Anyone got a hint? This is the last piece of my suspension I need to get done.

    the picture you posted is of a brummel, where the interlocking portion is separate from (sticking out at 90*) the loop. in a continuous loop, you use the same interlocking style but it is inline with the loop. in the picture that says "pull the tails tight", the loop is on the bottom and the ends are the lines on the top.

    I knew that post would come back to haunt me. Don't double the ends back and do it the way my post (that you quoted) shows.

    After you make the brummel from the original post, bury the ends in the direction shown in this photo....

    Ok now I got it. Been waiting a week, but I already made one the wrong way. Hopefully I can tease it apart and bury it right.

    Oh and do you send the bury right into the middle of the split in the braid or skip a pair (or more) of strands?

    If I'm understanding your question, normally you would skip a ~pair and then bury it. I'm guessing you could also "bury right into the middle of the split in the braid" instead of fully forming the brummel. It's the buries that do the work. However, I've always seen the "experts" make it with the brummel and then the bury so that's what I'll stay with.

    What do you mean by "taper" it???

    Cut strands out gradually to taper the end from its full thickness to a narrower tip. It makes the transition inside the bury smoother.
