Looking at some biplanes (esp stearman), I notice that some of the wing brace wires are mounted to wire tangs that are "twisted" 90 deg in order to either line up the axis better or other various reasons. When twisting a strap bracket like this, is there a "spec" for the amount of twist? I suppose the way to make it is bend it soft and have it heat treated to avoid cracks.
