Yes

This is done to give the rod and wraps a nice even coat of varnish (and Chris is a master of this process)

Thanks for your reply, Bob. But just to clarify... are you saying the exposed metal parts of the snake guides and the stripping guide - including the agate - are coated with varnish?

The varnish don't stick to the guides just the cane and wraps

Chris,

Still studying some.

I noticed about half way down page 3 that you'd left the masking tape strips on after gluing and before running them thru the binder. This generally OK to do then or is it better to remove them ?? (I'd rather do as you did here but I'm curious.)

Thanks,

Jeremy.

I just leave them on and scrape them off when removing the binding string.

Thats what I do except on the tips. I always have way too much tape on the tips and it throws me off and creates a bend because I put my strips in the forms and use a roller to straighten them after glue up and that wad of tape causes a sweep right at the tip.
