well that is all right, maybe you would like to help me out. since you have the math figured out I'm trying to add it to an excel sheet so no matter what you'll get the math asap. even if you have 0 bolsters and just plait 2 bellies and 1 overlay or what ever.Do you think that you are up for something like that?

addendum: i figured it out after 12 hours straight looking at it....... thanks though. no ever accused me of being the brightest color in the box.

I have not made it yet but plan on it. I am just having hell understand a specific part "Since we're folding the strands over instead of trying to secure the separate strands to the belly we add the whip length with safety factor in to the 6 shortest strands (3 shortest pairs).168 in + 28 in = 196 in.168 in + 56 in = 224 in.168 in + 84 in = 252 in.The remaining strands are dropping out before the end on both sides, so we add them in pairs, longest with shortest of the remainder.140 in + 112 in = 252 in.The final strands will be as follows:2x 196 in (folded at 168 in), 2x 224 in (folded at 168 in), 2x 252 in (folded at 168 in), 2x 252 in (folded at 140 in)."the part where you say since we're folding the strands over instead of trying to secure the separate stands to the the bel...
