I made a winding jig from pictures and instructions supplied by conehead. THIS JIG IS AWESOME!!!!! headbang.gif It holds the tension on the thread, holds the tension on the blank, and best of all, a mechanically challenged person such as myself can build it. thumbsup.gif Thank you so much conehead!!!!!!!! This has really made learning rod building so much easier. YOU ARE DA MAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! banana.gif

I just bought some mouse traps - I am making a jig tonight - I bought a piece of scrap at home depot for $2 - the 4 pack of traps was $2 - the felt to go around was $2 - and I bought a dowl rod to hold extra spools - 59 cents - I have screws and glue - so altogether - 6.59 plus tax = 6.99 for the Jig

I will post pics when I am done - mine will be slightly different

Cool, it'll be nice to see the pictures. I will be starting my first rod next week. This look like it'll be the ticket for my wrapper.

Will be looking forward to those photos. If you happen to get buy a building sio=pply store like Home Depot pick up a couple of the plastic holders for re bar when pouring concret. They make great up rights for both wrappers and drying epoxy. I will photograph one tomorrow and post it.

This 'project' looks interesting. I never considered making a winding jig myself. I do this work not so often, usually I just use a bobbin-holder for fly-tying and wrap from the hand. But this thing, I should have all these materials somewhere around my place.

First is a ground plate, piece of wood in cm's that would be approximately 10 x 20 cm. And I have a question right there, is that long enough?
I saw some pictures of your home-brews and they seemed much longer than 20 cm (8 inch). Would it be long enough to hold a rod right? Maybe I should make a loose support as third when I am working on either end of a rod?

The mouse-trap to hold the tread is a brilliant idea, I will demolish one soon for rod-building sake!

Last part are the rod-supports, some wood on right angle up from the base-plate with a V-shape space to lay the rod. OK, but I saw that people use something inside which hold the rod from unwinding. Is that necessary and what should I use for it?

Hoping to get answers!

Tight lines,
Flatfisher
