Cow with key high nip
« on: April 24, 2023, 11:02:18 AM »
About 2 decades ago Cow w/Better Half was a rage/seemed fashionable.
i came up with this and used it well, usually make the tail /Bitter End a slip, but just for more bulky spacer to the top nip
>>as i also consider the previous 'twirls' as spacers to final nip in Timber finished at top of 'hill'
.
The slip as the Half Hitch forms both are not used for their general purposes, but rather to maintain the control leg/output crossed under the Standing Part/input and then in the high nip position.  It does this 'early' in lacing, way before BE(Bitter End) and then almost again, but still in premium position on BE.
.
Forces seating to host, that we use for frictions, nips and grips, are determined by the radial/clock position from the input/Standing Part direction.
From a 6o'clock directional(so linear) input, TDC/noon gives the greatest downward seating pressure
>>where we find 2x in pulley*.


Would think someone else tripped over same pattern, but not seen that i remember.

shown:
From 6oclock pull TDC/noon is greatest DOWNWARD seating for frictions, nips and grips 2 xTension Xcos1=200#
not shown:
>>my theory extends to 45o from TDC/noon at 10:30 and 1:30 as most COLLECTIVE force seating,
>>cos and sine both .707 >>find 2 xTension(from apex/TDC) x .707 downward + 1 xTension x .707 inward =212.1# total
So i see 'artic cap' of cold clamping down pressure between 10.30 - 1:30 as target.
Seems that would make position in ABoK Sailor Hitch very purposefully not at TDC/noon..

Pull from right side counter clockwise, nip at 10:30 of great nip and then if walks, would have to do going from less downward pressure, to MORE downward pressure.  If nip at TDC/noon greatest downward pressure , and works a bit it is towards relief of less downward pressure, but fighting side pressure increase tho.  Thanks again Mr. Ashley !
This is rope work, and nip position(s) are key.

East meets West: again and again, cos:sine is the value pair of yin/yang dimensions
>>of benchmark aspect and it's non(e), defining total sum of the whole.
