Let us know how it works & how you like it. That would be handy for the guys that don't have long work benches, like me. I also have to apply epoxy in sections due to space limitations.

Nice setup.  Is there some sort of mandrel to hold the upper sections  in place?  The grip would be no problem, I would think.  Thanks for sharing.  Have fun.

Hello

 

This works fine. I build 3 rods in few days, before I need a week for one.

You can use it as table top, or you can mount it on the wall.

You have chuck jaw to hold blank in place ant this is it.

 

It save a lot of time for me

I have two of these. Bought one several years ago and just picked up another last year that was slightly used. My old one doesn't have the rubber band hooks like the new one does. I use one for long rods and the other for short pieces of a multi piece rod.

The only issue I have is that the grip comes loose once in a while if not tightened down securely. Why do you think they have the grips with rubber bands? As for turning sections of a rod on this, I built several shafts that are sloped to fit into just about any piece of rod. If not, tape always help to build it up make it tight.

;), I had the same expiriance. I'm thinking to updrage it with metal springs.

I build some shafts to, It is much easier to work.
