Default Re: Worth while to salvage on old, decent blank as a first project?

Finally got around to getting the reel seat off. Was surprizingly easy. Heat water. Soak butt of rod for maybe 3-5 minutes. Grab with towel and pull strait off to avoid splintering blank.

I'm thinking I did not want to find paper tube as a bushing.

Next is a little scraping and some measuring.
