Birdseye Backing Method Discovered!

A while back I was speculating on a method of doing birdseye backing on a Studio machine. Well, I ran across these nifty instructions while I was looking for something else and thought I would share my findings.

This really is an awesome blog, so much awesome and useful information! I urge you to check it out.

BTW. Birdseye backing can be made automatically on a Studio machine with the use of an RJ-1 ribber carriage. However, since these carriages are no longer being made and the people who have them are unwilling to part with them; the rest of us will just have to do it the long way.

When doing birdseye backing using this method be sure to have the ribber carriage set to tuck not slip. Also remember to change it back to slip when you are finished or your next tubular cast on will be a mess.
