Then measure the rate several times. You will find the rate to be VERY repeatable. Certainly more precise than our "calculation" of scope
Releasing by clutch

Some chain gypsys are very fussy. I have tried many of the suggestions, and only paint
does not affect the feed. The rope
feed is even fussier.
Both the chain and rope
are marked with paint
(latex is harmless to rope) and I do notice the markers when they pass.
