ROD BUILDING TIPS
Holding Guides In Place For Wrapping
By Mike Mendenhall


This is the method I use to attach and hold rod guides to a rod blank for wrapping.

First use a very thin piece of masking tape to tape the tip of the guide foot to the rod blank. Then using some elastic thread, make two or three wraps over the guide foot near the eye and tie it off with an overhand knot. After all the guides are attached to the rod blank they are very easy to adjust. After I wrap over the tip of the guide foot I cut the elastic thread and it flies off and doesn't interfere with the wrapping process. ~ Mike Mendenhall
