Default Re: Rod wrapping devices ???

If it works for you then it's perfect! So you did the rod tip constant tensioner ala Dan? What is the dowel to the right do? It there a paint brush tip dangling off it?

I did make one single block support that I put outside the stand to support a long end. That XP I just built is a 9'6" two piece, so I had my challenges just with the 57" sections in my stupid little basement room!

Anyway, a question for you guys: I see that some folks have their thread coming from the above the rod, others like it run from underneath then up and around the rod. I know it's personal preference, but are there practical advantages/disadvantages to one way or the other?
