HA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  YES!!! I GOT IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

After re-reading my last post, I got to thinking….

And I came up with a formula….

Kzamor followed Roy’s lead with a 36 pt circle. So what he needs to put in as a “twist” value is:

360 - (360/36) = 350

Kzamor, type the number “350” into your “twist” option, and that kink will disappear completely!  smile


PS:
Whenever you derive the twist value in this way, it represents ONE full twist. For multiple full twists, simply multiply your T value by the number of twists you want and it will also work perfectly.

Great Post, will file this info away for future use. I always thought it was a matter of trial and error to get the two ends to align but much easier with the math.
