Well, although I said in my immediately previous post that all the images were 7/16" 5/16" combo, the DB Box is actually

... the 1/2" 3/8" ring combo. Since the submitting of Dragonback Sheet, the sample in the image has been folded over and stitched up into, for lack of a better description, Dragonback Box. The flatter bottom gave the space necessary to connect it this way, and the humped top gives the resulting bulk (it's approximately an inch and a quarter square, inch a and a half from end of one arm to the opposite arm) a plus shaped cross section.


It also is about 4 inches long in the pics.

Really nice ED! I especially like the Dragonback Box and Persian Dragontail. Thanks for re-pointing out the stats, I think I have some more new things to try out over Christmas. Thanks. Very Happy

As a side note, the reason I mentioned the flatter bottom of the Dragonback regarding the Dragonback Box is that I meant to also mention that the Persian Dragonscale Sheet would not box up that way with that particular ring combination because it has a hump on either side that inhibits folding.

Third time's the charm, I guess Smile

Well, I went to take some good pictures of all of this stuff today, and a few other bits I've been doing, and a "What if #3" occurred to me.

What if #3 is stitching two HP3 chains together top to bottom. This is an EPH tube that requires same handedness on the HP3 chains. Working on the "sheet" version right now (well, taking a break to type this Smile), but the chain version works nicely with the 7/16" 5/16" combo I've used for most of this. Results in a chain that has one side like Persian Dragonscale and one side like Persian Dragontail.

Okay, back to work.
