3. Zig-Zag Sewing. (Refer to Table 1 and Table 2.) Airdrop items, except parachute canopies, made from
textile materials that have sustained cut or tear damage may be repaired by zig-zag sewing provided the
applicable damaged area does not have any material missing and the cut or tear is straight or L-shaped.
Should the damaged area be irregular shaped or have material missing, the repair will be achieved by
either darning or patching, as required. A zig-zag sewing repair will be accomplished with a zig-zag
sewing machine, using the following procedures:
a. Set the sewing machine to the maximum stitch width.
b. Beginning at a point ¼-inch beyond one end of the cut or tear, stitch lengthwise along the damaged
area to a point ¼-inch beyond the opposite end of the cut or tear.
c. The cited stitching procedure will also apply to an L-shaped cut or tear.
d. If applicable, restencil informational data or identification marks as prescribed in WP 0048 00,
