more than one piece to spine...

Rate this topic

Al,

 

We've talked a bit about spining/splining a one-piece rod here. However, I've got several 2, 3 and 4 piece rods to build, mostly fly rods but a few are spinning and conventional, and would like some advice on how to effectively spine/spline a multi-piece blank. It's my understanding that each piece has to be spined individually. Your suggestions on how to properly spine and align guides on a multi-piece blank would be much appreciated.

 

Also, for a heavier 2 piece blank, such as a Lami 132ML-2, it's nearly impossible for me to find the spine on the butt section because it's too stiff. In that case, does it matter where you place the guides on that section? Is it worth comparing the graphite fiber alignment of the top half to those of the bottom and then aligning the guides on the bottom half accordingly?

 

Thanks, Mark

Mark,

 

I apologize for the long delay in responding to your question. Clemens has just introduced a really new new tool called a

"vertical spine finder". It makes it a snap to spine multi-piece blanks. When you come to the National next month I will show you how to use it. I was playing with it at the Somerset Fly Show and showing people how to use it. They were amazed as to it's simplicity.

I'm sure Al won't mind me replying for him while he is away. The new spine finder can be ordered from WWW.clemenstackle.com. I think the cost is about $40.00. Call them up and Rose will give you the details. I hope I get to meet some of you guys at the Freeport Show this weekend. I will be sharing the booths with Al and representing my self and the Shinnecock Star and also him while he is giving his presentations. Capt Neil
