Nice work Kayo but that darn finishing motor will be the wrench thrown into the deal

Although I think they are worth the cost because turning by hand, although it can be done, isn't nearly as good a way.

Great post and I'll rep that one........

I have one that I bought from Cabela's in 1981, it is 3.5 rpm. The new fast ones seem too fast to me, look for a slower motor, it'll work fine, trust me. I've used mine with both epoxy finishes and varnish. 3.5 or as close as you can get to it

I always like to see custom rod building stands. How do you keep the thread holder stand in place under tension? I need to rebuild the spool holder/tensioner part of my setup.

Thanks for sharing.

All be it years ago I used the 'spring' from a ball point pen with a screw through and a 'wing nut' nut for tension. Pretty simple but it worked.

Go to Ace Hardware or your local store. they sell many size springs, for 50 cents each if you look at the first picture you can see the spring
between the wood and the spool, I use a nylon washer on both side of the thread spool for smother tension.

I think he is asking how you keep the base that holds the spools under tension from moving/wiggling on the table, while you wrap. I had the same question. If you built it so that it doesn't move or shift at all it would be great to know, looks like a very flexible set-up.

Yes that is what I meant. It looks like that base would be pulled forward as you wrap. I have my thread spool rods attached to the same base as the rod cradle, but it is problematic with having them upright. I need to make something so they are held parallel.

I attached all the uprights to a base, 2 of the 3 uprights are adjustable and the motor fits in a bracket on the end and is removed during the wrapping process
