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?
