But, he asks that you test, if possible, to see if he got it right and report to him how the calculator gets it wrong with 7/64" cord so he can modify it, if necessary.
Since 7/64 and 1/8 diameters are so close it was not immediately evident when I made my first soft shackle (it had a "close enough" feel to it), but I just made a new soft shackle using the 7/64 calculator values, the difference is very obvious. The eye is very much more snug around the diamond knot, and everything just seems more refined and exact.
Ah well; the first shackle I made is still a nice "my first splicing project" souvenir!
Jo-Ann's has them.Have to find a store close by, shipping is more than the tool!
