Looking forward to seeing Bill's article. HE's been going to ICRBE's for a long time, although I haven't seen him since High point. He does really nice work, as seen on teh cover.

He had another cutting tool that was featured in an article several years ago, right?

Yes. There is now some additional information to go with his article which details how to use a "fence" to get verbatim cuts each time. Pretty clever.

Tom, the cover looks great! Thanks. Billy, thanks for the compliments, coming from the eva guru! I believe I sent you one of the eva cutting tools. Hopefully, I'll make to the show this year.

You're welcome Bill. Hopefully you'll make it to Winston Salem this year. Yes I did have one of your cutting tools, I have a bandsaw and lathe so it wasn't something I could use. FOr those who do not have access to those tools, your methods should open up an entire world to rodbuilders that never knew how easy it was to make awesome EVA inlays

Billy, you are right.. I wrote this article to show how I make my grips .and how easy it really is. If you can glue a model plane or car together you should have no problem making my grips. I also want to thank Tom again for printing the article in the Rodmaker Magazine.

We sometimes forget that many if not most rod builders do not have power tools readily available and therefore have to rely on more simple methods. Bill has provided some means to get the same results you'd get with power tools, with common items that most rod builders have or can cobble together. Great article.
