Cable Tow Question for Discussion

Brothers,  I received an email with a question that was asked by a brother through the Grand Lodge web site.

There seems to be much symbolism in the use of the cabletow, but I have begun to wonder, what is the correct length of the cabletow? It has been interesting to see the symbology of it, but is there a specified length of it?

                                 Where do I find that answer?

KSLOR members:  Please log in and post your response.  If you forgot your credentials, please reset your password.
