Multi Rod Dryers

Considering adding some new multi rod dryers to the shop, and looking for any input. I currently use the Pac Bay 4 rod dryers mounted to the wall. Anyone have any experience with either the Flex Coat or CRB 4 rod dryers?

I don't really have time to build a set up, so looking for something to purchase.

What I have works OK, but at times the small rollers get stuck and don't turn, and the rubber o-rings leave a nice rub mark in the blank finish - not very good.

Thanks!

I have a home made system so I cannot comment on the commercial models.

I am cautious of rollers so when I use them I wrap electrical tape around the blank at each of the roller points,if the roller sticks the tape rubs on the roller and protects the blank.

It takes a little extra time but worth it.

Marc,
If you like you could use one of these drum dryers to dry your rods.

Drop me an e-mail if you would like more details.

Take care
Roger

Roger doesn't sell rod building wrappers and dryers. He's not a sponsor here and understands that using this forum to steer people to such products of his making would be a blatant violation of the forum rules.

No problem. I'm sure if Roger had been getting sales based on promoting such products on this forum and photo page, he would have bought a sponsorship in order to give back and help support the cost of the sales medium that he had benefitted from.
