For those who asked for a pictorial / video blog on restoring a fishing rod…..
for the purpose of expediting my education in video editing / posting etc… I have used the myrtle rod handle and foregrip previously posted in my projects. I doubted that many of you would be enthralled by my turning of the handle or fore grip..pretty straightforward stuff there… just turn to length and diameter desired…to a depth in the foregrip to provide sufficient support for the rod shaft dpending on the size / kind of fish you will be after….split them on the lathe while between centers and use the example in the video to guide you.
Hope you guys enjoy the video! You may have to watch it with your mouse hovering over the “pause” button…my timing for the frames needs work!
