    Default Wire cast and helix question.

    Recently I have not been impressed with my random checks of wire cast and helix. My drums have been making a bow tie on the floor instead of tracking in a coil. Often the helix in the loop raises almost three inches off the floor. What are the actual standards that wire should meet? What is the proper method of checking this condition? Any information on this is greatly appreciated. We are running L50 and 56 in 045 and larger.

    I have never found it to be that much of an issue, so long as the cast to the wire is enough that it makes good contact at the contact tip, then no problem.
