The Masters Guide to Building a Bamboo Flyrod

Times have gotten tough and I'm forced to sell my copy of the Bible. Asking 150 obo.


Thanks for looking. I want it to go to a good home.



Blade sharpening guide question.

25 March 2015 - 09:43 PM

I'm using one of these blade guides where 38mm equals 30*. Does anyone know how many mm would give me a bevel of 37*? I had been using a secondary bevel of 45* and I'd like to try something different. I lost my calculator and don't have the trig tables memorized. Thanks

Looking for downsizing ideas.

I HAVEN'T BUILT A ROD IN FIVE YEARS!  Long story short, got divorced, lost my shop space.  Since then I've not moved into a suitable place that is conducive to rod building. I had to get rid of my workbenches, but managed to keep everything else.  I'm in a small apartment and I'm curious how others have tackled this issue. Dip tube is definitely a problem. I've read the pinned post on pouring finish, but I fear change. Anyway, how have you other spatially challenged builders solved this? Bench ideas, pour ideas, anything.
