Sorry about taking so long to get to this. But here are a couple of the ones I ade. I have built a ton of rods on these and they work fine. They didn't cost a bunch and I think probably work better in some ways.
This is the first one I made. The double thread tension devices are for blending wraps from one color to another. The rod tips have two purposes. The long high one keeps tension on the thread if you go back a tad like backing past a crossed thread. Trust me on this one, that's a good thing. The bottom rod tip is for doing weaves, so that I can do the threads to the left up on top where I'm looking instead of off on the side facing me by making the angle the thread hits the rod lower. Notice the small casting guide, bent flat and glued into hole, that the thread passes through. This is to make the thread pass flat through the tension device.
If you noticed, there is a cork arbor and a turning motor on one end. This keeps all the needed stand stuff one one device, plus the weight helps keep it from sliding around when you are wrapping thread. To keep the cord out of the way, I did a velcro wrap thing on the back side.
The rod stands I made as simple as possible. Notice in this photo I have put two screws in the stand and took a piece of web strap and a couple of rubber bands and rig it like this. This is used for a number of things. Keeping thread tension on the background thread while you are flipping the threads on the left list weaving. You're right in the middle of a wrap and the phone rings. need both hands to do one or two turn inlays in a wrap, etc. When I made these, I made the upright piece longer than I needed to, drilled the hole, cut it off through the middle of the hole and saved the cutoff part. I put felt in the half hole on that as well and on the bottom. I made them about an inch tall overall. They work good for doing the writing on you rod and stuff like that.
I built a second set of rod stands with furniture wheels. This is great for long wraps like the under wrap for a cross wrap pattern or diamond wrap. Or in fly rods, the base for a feather inlay. It sucks for regular work though. Turn to easy and blanks have a tendancy to come off in the worst possible times. They do make a really good spine finder though.
I made a second rod wrapper pretty much like the first one. Notice the chuck on the turning motor. It's a used thread spool. I used an aluminum arrow shaft section to start off with, built up the outside diameter with tape, and epoxied the spool on. I then drilled a small hole in the shaft, tapped it and put in a set screw. That holds it on the turning motor shaft. I put four screws in it and use rubber bands hooked on the screws to hold the butt end of the rod in place when its turning. I use masking tape on the cork arbor. As a side tip, I bought lamp timers and set them to turn off 2 hours after I plug in the motor so I don't need to stay up and turn it off when I do a late night finish coat.
Notice on this one there is two spool holders but only one tension device. I use one of them for metallic thread. I place weight on top of the spool to get the right tension, because running metallics through a tension device will strip the mylar off.
I hope this helps.
