Thank you jpbfly! The holder I use for wrapping my rods actually came from Cabelas. The LEAST expensive unit they sell. When I started out rod building, I went inexpensive, because I had no idea if I'd really like doing it!
Now, all these years later, and goodness only knows how many rods!, I'm still using the same equipment. I'll improvise at times through the local orthodontist, and Ace Hardware, but it's VERY basic. Guess I'm of the "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" theory!! fyi: orthodontist; elastics to hold guides for wrapping, and small spatula, and pick for mixing epoxy and cleaning guides. Ace Hrdwr; lazer level, crutch tips (that's a story in itself!), and small clamps.
