A little bit of fine tuning required but not too far off

I might suggest that you quit now. You are not likely to improve that very much using hand tools, or even a manually operated milling machine. Have yourself a cup of your favorite coffee. Reach behind you and pat yourself on the back for a job well done. And remember, there is a reason we make the forms adjustable!

Congratulations,
Harry

Thanks, it certainly feels good to have them completed and one step closer to building my first rod.

There are however a few sections that need to be addressed I feel. I can't help but tinker. A few flat spots here and there. 1 inch down from station number 1 on the tip side the depth actually drops back to 0.018 before tapering down to station 2. I can definitely tighten up the tip and butt of the butt side also.

Plotting it out on a graph helped a lot, thanks again, will post up final measurements when complete.

I'd take Harry's advice and stop there. One thing I almost guarantee will happen when building a rod is wishing you would have stopped at good. There will be times you overshoot Good looking for Perfect and wind up with Junk.

Try as I might I just couldn't resist the urge to give them one more go. I don't think I was quite happy the way they were and although they are far from perfect now, at least I can go to sleep without it playing on my mind.

The attention to detail and quest for accuracy that you have shown in your efforts to construct planing forms would lead anyone to believe that you will produce a finished rods that will be excellent. The numbers look good and you should be able to produce any taper you desire. Your work is to be commended. Please do show off a finished product when the time comes.

Thanks Galt, I sincerely hope so. It's been a steep learning curve but I feel in making my own forms it's given me an appreciation for the accuracy required in making bamboo rods. I've never before worked to anything less than a millimetre.

I certainly will show off a finished product though I'm not sure when that will be, having first decided to take up this hobby about 3 years ago it's been slow going. I hope to have my first rod completed by the end of the year, though with the trout season about to start it may be this time next year. wink.gif

Cheers

Steve

To post decent size and quality photos, you need to use a hosting site such as photobucket. Copy the "img" link and then paste it into the text field wherever you want the photo to appear.

See screenshot from photobucket below.

For anyone that is interested and still following this thread, I've finally completed my first Cane rod, hoorah.

Pic have been posted in the Bamboo showcase section.

Thanks to all who offered advice and or encouragement.
