Get a sanding block with 120 grit and go to town on it. Knock off the high spots and then drop down to a finer grit like 220. It'll only take about 15 minutes to come up with a nice smooth blank just like from the factory.

I always did like Permagloss but if you were lucky enough to get a bottle that wasn't partially solid and could use all of it, which was rare I switched to @#$%& and never had a problem since.

No , it's an old AMTEK model, Eglass, with a fast taper,7'6". Used to extend them with a Tuff Butt and the finished rod would be 9'.

Camillo, I would suggest that you check all those guides in the tip section for a rough spot in the rings. Look for cracks, burs or anything that could be slowing the line down in that area. It seems like something is choking your line causing it to back up on itself.

Roger pick me up at exit 9 on the NJ turnpike. I'll be the guy on the side of the road with a case of beer under one arm and an empty 5 gal bucket in the other. It's gonna be a long bumpy ride.

My wife found these little wooden clothespins that are used for holding notes/memos on the fridge door. Well one ended up on my bench and with a little help from my belt sander it is now about 3/16 " wide at the nose and perfectly holds those micro guides near the rod tip. E Z on E Z off, their made of wood so you can file a valley in the nose to accept the guide foot on one jaw and another

Roger, It might be worthwhile to turn a complete set and compare the sustain and brightness of the tone. I know that ivory was used before being banned and a synthetic is used for end pins, but I'm not aware of graphite being used. You just might have something there.

Hello Jerry, If you can confirm the length and tip sizes of your blanks to match the model numbers and sizes that I provide, they just might be rolled on Harnell mandrels. 529 1pc 7'2" .715 butt #12 tip 550 1pc 8'6" .875 butt # 18 tip This info is from an old catalog and price list from 1988. The 527 is listed on the price list but not on the spec

Normally I can coat a size"D" wrap in one application with regular procoat and it looks flawless. Your not using enough, your coat is too dry. If you have any welding experience, you have to 'work the puddle" , Glob it on and use your brush to move the excess where it needs to be without becoming unbalanced.

Jim, I only have info on the Bluewater Series.There are 10 blanks in this series ranging in size from 5'1" to7' two seven footers are listed and the one closest to your description is a #BW1425SP70B ,14-25 lb., 9 tip, .6665 butt, blank ID D89 (?) Do you think this blank was extended to make the rod 7'6" or it could be from another series. I'm getting this info from an old Merrick Tackl

It all depends on what your looking for because the shops from the Highlands and going north on 36 and 35 have limited items. Fred's on 35 in Morgan had National thread and some blanks ,but if you find something there, its by chance. Julian's on 36 is another shop that (by Chance) you might find what your looking for. The best advice I could give is to call ahead to see if they have rod building

To you and anyone else who has this experience, it is called "Paying Your Dues" and this is how the craft has evolved.It is a true old world lesson that is gained by your desire to accomplish a task. You start with whats available, economical, and popular, then when the lessons over you invest in quality drying motors. Yes a new motor of the same type you now have will still reverse d
