I got a Shakespeare Wonderod in a trade. The cork is in good shape, the guides were all messed up. I removed them, and I also noticed that the ferrule on the butt section is crooked. I wanted to remove it and reinstall it straight.
My problem is that I can't figure out how to remove it. What would be the best way?
Also what would be the best way to remove the old finish that is stuck to the blank?
