Rod Crafters Journal

I got these Rod Crafters Journal magazines when I purchased a Renzetti Lathe and an assortment of rod building supplies from a gentleman in the Detriot, Mi. area. They are from March 1975 to Dec.
1986. There are about 75 or 80 issues. Are they of any value ?
Also I am looking for Dale Clemens weaving tool that is used in the
Decorative Rod Wrapping Volume 2 Video by Artie Herbert.
I can not seem to locate one on the internet.

No particular value other than reading pleasure. Not always accurate from a technical standpoint but tips and articles from rod builders in general. Some good tips and ideas. I believe they are still publishing in some form but infrequently.

Good little booklets. But as Ed said do not bank too heavily on anything of a technical nature you see in them. The ideas and tips are fine. Back issues are still selling for about 2 bucks apiece so I don't think you have anything very valuable unless you have some older copies that they're out of and someone might want. Put them up on @#$%& and see what they bring if you want to try and sell them.
