Whirlly Gig #1 (BEAD19.JRG)
By Jeff R. Graham
Copyright 2007
Angles for R.I. = 1.54
60 facets
6-fold symmetry
96 index
L/W = 1.155
H/W = 1.908
Vol./W^3 = 0.692

 

Addition # 14 – NOTE: A temporary girdle can be cut using the P1 settings. I generally flatten the points or, better yet, counter sink a small spacer bead half the depth of the bead in on the points to protect the bead when strung.
