Found something today that is giving me a perfect looking wrap and tension. I have the Pac Bay powerwrapper. On the sliding thread tray there are 4 metal posts sticking up to put spools on. There is a plastic open loop before and one after the screw down tension device to run thread through. Today I did one loop around an empty spool holder post before going through everything else and it gave me a perfect tension and when I stopped turning the rod it kept the tension on the spool and kept the wrap tighter a lot better than I had done before.
Any one else tried this? Just thought I would share.

I hadn't thought of that. I will give it a shot. Thanks for the tip!
