Numbers Sound right????

I calabrated my die last night and just want to see if my numbers sound right.

1.75 die- 5.5 Cl

CLR = 13-1.75/2= 6.125

CAL CLR = 16.125(leg1)+10.875(leg2)-22.5-1.75*2.33= 6.41

Bend Location = .625

If this is a Model 3 or 32 the Bend Location Offset should be negative: -.625

Rest of the numbers look good

Is there a base set of numbers or tubing dies for a model 3?

You should do the calibration in the software and not work from a guess number.

Isn't 13-1.75/2= 5.625?
or am I just reading it wrong?
