what controls the lay?
« on: March 29, 2019, 05:47:39 PM »
When making rope, I understand the direction of the lay is controlled by the direction of twist.  I do wonder, though, what makes one rope lay harder than another?  Is it the weight of the sled, making a tighter twist before the rope is allowed to lay up?  Anybody have any references on how that works?

Thanks!!
