Does anyone know if there is a DC motor that will fit on a Renzetti wrapping lathe. I would like to be able to change the direction of rotation when I am building a rod.

What are most of you using as a cutoff tool to shorten a blank? I tryed a dremel with a thin cutting disk but didn’t get a smooth concentric cutoff.

I just found a video on You Tube showing a Cork Drilling Jig. Are the plans/instruction for building the jig still available?

I have found that an Easy Wood Mini Easy Rougher with a Ci2-R2 carbide cutter at around 1000 to 1300 RPM with a (light touch!!) works well to get concentric and a Ci2-SQ cutter to form tenions to fit in the reel seats. The key is light touch!!

What is the best procedure when putting an underwrap on a off shore rod? Should the under wrap be epoxies before wrapping the guides or should it all be finished with the epoxy at the same time? I am double wrapping then guides as well. Is double wrapping the guides necessary? this is my first offshore rod so I am kind of flying blind.

Thank you all for your feedback. After spending 40 years in the oil business and taking up rod building for a hobby it is refreshing to be involved in something where the experts freely share their knowledge!

I am going to convert 2 conventual stand up off shore rods to spiral wrapped guides. How many transitional guides, at what position and spacing should the guides be placed for the 0 to 180 transition. Any help is appreciated.

Will an American Tackle Thread Carrier work on an ALPS Power Wrapper. If not does anyone have a recommendation for a multi thread carriage for an ALPS to make Tiger Wraps more manageable?
