No it doesn't seem to affect the thread at all Jamie. One thing you want to
be careful with is to not cut it TOO short, so that it's difficult to
stretch it to the other anchor hole. Practice on a couple of oldies before
you commit to your pride and joy.

Cheers,
Mike

Hi Michael;

Thanks. I just dicovered that while I was chasing the interplane wire I was
trying to attach, those nasty little gnomes were busy detaching one of the
control wires that were put on yesterday and spiriting it away. They only
managed to get it as far as the door of my workroom and I spotted it when I
was going back to resume work.

Does the ink change the elasticity of the stretch stuff? Have you tried
paint?

Jamie
