Eight inches between uprights is probably good, but you may need an outrigger to hold the long end of the section you are working on, especially as you get near the tip. This could be another V block, or just a box or some other support.

My winding jig is 24" long, or about 61 CM, with movable uprights. The V notches can be used unlined, but after a couple of rods, I glued strips of felt in mine. The loop side of Velcro ™ will also work, and is quite inexpensive, at least here in the US.

Welcome. I put a couple of screws in my uprights and loop a rubber band over the rod to keep it from unwinding. Works good for me. Seems easier than velcro but I have not tried velcro, so what do I know. If you are like most of us you will change and modify your stands as you go to make it work better for you. Heck, I'm on my third improved version.

These are available in different sizes. add a little felt and screw holes and you are in business.

Hey rover,

What are these, and where can I find them?

I believe those are made to hold re-bar in position off the dirt. Looks like they would work

I made one in an afternoon. Could have done it faster but I only had one wood clamp that was big enough. I think it turned out quite well. It cost me about $5; $4.50 for 6' of premium grade wood, $0.50 for 2 mouse traps (only used 1), and $0.29 for a piece of felt. I had 2 screws and wood glue. I plan to turn the stand on the left into a powered dryer as soon as I find a suitable motor. I bought an electric can opener from a thrift shop but found out the hard way that it isn't very suitable.

Try a microwave motor or even better a disco ball motor

I see it's been awhile since someone has posted here. About a drying motor, I have a battery operated fly drier that I got from Orvis. A roll of masking tape does well for a chuck. Works great.
