You want the back length to be less than the front length. How to get them right depends on both the length of the tie, and the size of our neck -- there's no one-size-fits-all instruction to start with so much on each side.

See http://www.tie-a-tie.net/windsor.html or a host of other sites that will tell you how to tie any tie knot.

Windsor knot tie instruction


Cross over, around the right side, in back and around the left side, over the front and around the right side, this time putting the fat part behind the frontmost layer you just laid.

Or, perhaps better, see http://www.ties.com/how-to-tie-a-tie/windsor
I think that the Windsor is the best-looking of the common tie knots.

The recoil rope has pulled out of the chainsaw. How do I reattach correctly?


Did the cord break off or just lost the knot on the end? Remove the starter assembly from the case to expose the spool. You need to wind the return spring (turn the spool) CCW about 4-turns, then wedge it so that it doesn't unwind. Replace the cord if worn out and feed the cord end into the spool start point. Melt the end to prevent the knot from pulling out and tie an overhand knot in the end. Thread the cord around the spool 4 times, then feed the end out of the cord port, slide the handle on, melt the cord end, tie an overhand knot in the end, and tuck the knot into the handle. Pull the cord through several times to make sure it works correctly. Remove the wedge. Hope this helps!

I have a 1200w ust portable generator and when I went to start it the cord it the cord snapped. What tools do I need and how do I replace it?


You do not need any special tools but you do need a third hand somtimes to complete the job.
Here are the basic steps after you remove the starter from the engine:
Prepair the new starter rope by burning the end to keeping it from fraying and shape it into a point. Use a rag to shape the point because it will be very hot. (about 5 feet of good qualty starter rope size to match existing. It is sold in sizes form about 3.5 to 6.5) Tie a temp knot on the other end of the new rope. Remove the old rope and align the hole in the spool with the hole on the starter cover and practice incerting the rope thru the guide hole on the cover into hole on the spool . This will be the final action after you wind the spool. You should be able to hold the spool and insert the rope thru both holes and tie a knot while holding the spool in a wound state. Once you have mastered incerting the rope thru both holes and tying a knot you are ready to begin.
Wind the spool in the same direction that the spool turns when you pull the rope. You must wind in the correct direction or you may bend the rewind spring out of shape. The spool will begin to tighten as you wind and will eventually stop turning when the spring is fully wound. Once fully wound unwind spool one full turn and stop when hole on spool aligns with hole in cover. Now insert rope as practiced thru both holes and tie knot with free hand or have helping hand. Once knot is tied slowly let spool take rope in untill no more will go in or you reach temp knot. Now tie pull handle and you are done. Good luck

I need to know how to attach starter rope on a chainsaw


The end-of cord knots are simple overhand knots, but you need to melt the cord ends back a little so that the knots won't pull out (do the outer end after threading the cord through the handle). You have to wind up the spring so that it has good 'pullback', but not so far that the spring binds-up when trying to start the engine. Wedge the spool so that it doesn't unwind, then run the cord into the spool, heat the cord end, and tie the knot. Fish the cord around the spool in a CCW direction until the spool is nearly filled. Thread the cord out through the port on the outside, then slide on the handle, heat the cord end, and tie another knot. Hope this helps!

KREEPY-KRAULY Ties itself into a knot while cleaning.


Solution:
We removed 2 portions of hose located at the Krauly end, and attached those at the filter end, then we took the 2 portions located at the filter end, and placed those at the beginning of the Krauly end.
Apparently the problem was that the 2 portions of hosing at the Krauly end had become "twisted" and continually enabled the Krauly to move in the knot tying direction. By replacing these 2 portions at the Krauly end with "un-twisted" portions from the filter end, this ended the twisting cycle.
The Krauly has been running for 48hours straight now without a single knotting episode.
If we see the knot tying direction beginning again, we will repeat these steps, continually replacing with un-twisted portions.
At 1st we thought we needed to purchase some new tubing, but we didn't have to, only needed to move around some hosing.
