Dryers

I want to build my own rod.....I'm new to this and still doing my research.

I need to know a little more than I've been able to find about rod dryers.

How many rpms should one have?

I've seen them from 6 rpm's to 100!

Any info or thoughts about rod dryers would be most appriceated!

Most rod builders use six, but I think you could use up to 18 without screwing anything up. That's based on selling about fifty of em, and Probably forty-five of em were 6rpm.

If you're handy, you can save a considerable amount of money creating your own setup. Make a couple of V-blocks and line the V's with felt. Go to a home center, and you can buy a barbeque rotisserie motor for $20-30. It will do fine as a drying motor. All you have to do is rig up a chuck or some other method of connecting the rod to the motor shaft. It's exactly what I did, and it works fine for rod drying and even drying epoxy on plugs. There's no reason to spend big bucks on equipment unless you start making rods on a regular basis.
