Ah, I see what you mean! Yes, you can still use your smooth/slippery ribbon, just make sure to knot it around each feather shaft so it doesn't shift. I can't believe I didn't mention that in the original tutorial! One more thing to change/update in the new one....
Because once all the primary feathers are inside the pivot point on the screw, a bit of the screw should be left over that sticks out & that's where the D-ring goes (with the elastic attached & secondary feathers strung on it). I usually put a few washers between the pivot point, D-ring, and final bolt on the screw.
Does that help?
Are you able to video call with skype? I can make a better assessment if I can see them. If so, send me a PM.
Also, one last thing, I posted two photos of the wings I made using ur tutorial on tumblr but I added a link to the description leading to the first post of yout tutorial. I hope thats okay, if not just tell me what youd rather I do n I'll do it ok thanks for everything!
