47
Do the same with the other five pairs
of opposite foxes. If the twists tend
to come undone, tie the ends with a
thread. When all the foxes are twisted
evenly together, ^adjust and stretch till the strain is even, then twist one part of the
rope round till all the 6 twists are
laid up as six-strand rope, with the
same lay as the origional ropes. It
will now be found that the joining
part has a natural lay of its own,
but the angle of it with the axis
of the rope will be more acute than that of the joined parts. The
precise angle depends on the previous twisting
of the foxes individually & in pairs. If this
