Continue turning to the point where the wrap will end.
Apply pressure with your index finger to maintain
tension, then cut the thread.
Tuck the loos end of the thread through the loop while
maintaining pressure with your finger.
Continue wrapping until the thread is 6 to 8 turns
from where the wrap will end. At this point, lay
down a separate loop of thread or monofilament under
the wrap. The loop should point in the direction of the
wrap and should be on the opposite side of the blank
from the guide.
Pull the loop under the wrap,
continuing to apply pressure
with your finger. This will bring the loose end
under the wrap, securely tying it off.
Work the thread from side to side to
open a slight gap in the thread wrap.
Place the utility knife on the tie off thread
in the gap and pull the thread up against
blade to cut. Do not saw or slice. Use the rounded,
polished handle of the thread clippers to burnish
the thread and eliminate any gaps.
Finished wrap !
