I'm looking for ideas here as I have a bunch of rod blanks I'd like to check.

 

Ever since we moved in to a new house from 3500 Sq ft to one with about 1250 Sq ft some things just went by the wayside.   One of those was a spare wall to set up my CC system plus a demanding wife who complains about my ideas of decorating.

 

Any of you folks have a portable or mobile system you can share pics of?

Don't know if you hasve any way to do this, but doesn't take up much room.  This is the front office.

I just use a bookshelf - put the rod under books (have lots of heavy books) :)

"OK, dear.  Stand still and hold the rod as level as you can.  Keep a tight grip on it so it doesn't move.  Then I'll take you out to eat.  McDonald's or Burger King?"

Could you adapt that setup to clamp to a tabletop or something?

That has possibilities as soon as I can figure out how to rearrange my odd shaped (not square) "office/computer/rodbuilding room" <LOL>

 

I do like your apperoach to this and I do have a couple of lathes to make those pretty rollers ... for those of us that are mentally challenged by pics let me see if I can understand your process.

 

1 -  Back roller is probably fixed and center bored

 

2 - Front roller is bored offset which allows you to rotate and make sure rod is centered.

 

3 - What about the business end?  How do you have the action angle attached, to a mobile stand or held freehand with a yard stck?

I do have two book cases in here but no way to incorporate them for use ...

This is a funny approach to a problem but the wife, while more than willing to "help" we have a serious language problem.

 

While I speak english she speaks female ... there's a translation issue that can be frustrating at times just like when I asked her to do something simple like turn the knob (I used a swag lamp J hook and used the threads to attach the blank via painters tape) so the rod blank rotates so I can paint this fiberglass blank in my cardboard box paint booth.

 

I ended up doing it myself.

 

And John,  I took her to Red Robin yesterday ... because the Seahawks scored from the redzone we were eligible for a free Double Tavern hamburger.   Because it's her birthday this month she scored a free hamburger.   I got out of the place for $6 for drinks

There are actually 4 separate rollers there, 2 in the front and 2 in the rear. the front are offset drilled, and can rotate separately.  They are separated with Teflon washers to make them turn to adjustment separately..For the measuring and action angle, I use a small tripod

Great info, I've been thinking about doing the same here. Although my wife thinks my fly tying, rod building, reloading room is for storage.

Really,$6 ? I'm past that on the first drink order. Then again it's a 2 hr drive to the closest Red Robin

Looks like a near-perfect solution to me. Even I have room for that! Can the rollers be purchased somewhere? Or only home made?
