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.
I'm currently out of my mind, but feel free to leave a message, and if you would like to reach me by phone, please hang up now.
