    double knot?

    Watch this youtube video on split grade printing. Is he saying 'double knot' filter around the end? I know he's using a grade 5 filter, but I can't understand the name of the other one.

    It clicked in part 2 when he drew out his working print sheet. Sorry, I'm not up to par on my proper English.

    Its a Jethro Bodine thing, he was tops in his class multiplying by naught. Naught times naught is naught, and so on. He saw his first James Bond movie(Goldfinger) and was going to be a "Double Naught Spy" even made a hat like Oddjob had.

    Rick,

    I think Jethro Bodine's thing was to become a "naught an' naught" spy... Same thing, but more alliteration

    For those still wondering, Jethro Bodine was Jed Clampetts nephew on "The Beverly Hillbillies", a long running TV sitcom from the 60's.

    The long running gag was that Jethro was going to be a brain surgeon. And it is actually "double ought".
    Thy heart -- thy heart! -- I wake and sigh,
    And sleep to dream till day
    Of the truth that gold can never buy
    Of the bawbles that it may.
