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

The variegated thread is called "jasper" but this is the only affordable one that I know of.
Pearsall's Gossamer silk thread Jasper #33
There are others. A spool from Rick's Rods is 20 bucks.

IMO tip-tops are hard to size, even after measuring. Fortunately they're cheap. I buy an assortment
