Re: Rod building forum.

Did it once to shorten a blank slightly when installing a reel seat.

Bought the finest hacksaw blade I could find. Wrapped the blank where I planned to make the cut with one layer of masking tape, put it in a mitre box
and, very slowly, cut through the blank. Finished the end lightly with fine garnet paper. Have no experience with cutting a blank at any other location, think I would contact the manufacturer before doing so.

Am sure there are other ways of doing this, would like to hear about them.

Good luck.
