Jens Pind Linkage 3x3 (JPL3x3)
The weaves of the JPL3x family are progressions to Jens Pind Linkage (JPL3), as e.g. Jens Pind Linkage 5x2 is to Jens Pind Linkage 5. They are in fact not only JPL descendants, but also related to Half Persian chains, as if one ring row is removed, a normal HP(x*2)in1 weave is the result - in case of JPL3x3 this is Half Persian 6 in 1. See also the references given in JPL5x2's weave description.
JPL3x3 has a roughly hexagonal cross-section. Ring size and AR used for submission example are: 1.6mm BA coiled on 17/32" mandrel, final ID ~15 mm, AR ~ 9.4 what is a bit loose; this weave looks best near the lower AR limit when the chain is near to be stiff, what happens at around AR 9.0, what was achieved with a 1/2" mandrel for that wire. If higher ARs are used the weave can be squished flat.
