I used too many expansions for the lower mantle...also I used the 6 triangle method, but the lower sheet after the expanding circle is a little off kilter...any sugguestions? Its 14g galv Euro 4-1...currently creating 16g stainless .25 ID 4-1

too many expansions, check this article to see how to determine the number of expansions you need: http://www.mailleartisans.org/board/viewtopic.php?t=17230

probably around 6-8.

also: be careful playing with knives.

Hahaha...ty ty Chao...I knew it was way too many expansions...some of it I was actually expanding every other ring Razz Now that is a lot of extra weight! Thank you so much for helping me post the pic and linking that article...ive been using this site for about 2 years, but I never really have fully understood expansions...it seems I was just concentrating on making huge sheets of different weaves...now that I have that down pretty well, im going to work on armor.
