Topic: Rieger 13 shape wire measurements

Anyone here use a Rieger 13 shape? If so, where to you put your wires?

Re: Rieger 13 shape wire measurements

I've been using a 13 shape for the past three-four years. I place the 3rd wire 6mm from the bottom, 2nd wire at 19mm, and 1st between 26-27mm and I measure from the middle of the wire rather than the top.

Hope that helps!
