Re: Drying motor question.
If you have the wood lying around make a some extra supports. One for the wrapper that can stand on the table and hold the blank even with the wrapper - it's helpful when working on a long blank or the tip-top so you can use your two supports on the wrapper to hold the tip section while wrapping it (it flexes a lot). Might not be bad to make an extra for the dryer as well in case you're ever drying a long rod. usually don't do too many guides at once but if you ever finish three ferrule wraps at once you can support the blank well.
