All you really need is a draw file to dress the guide feet (taper to a fine edge), a stone or fine sand paper to de-burr the guide feet after filing, a heavy book and some weights (tackle box?) for thread tension (thread runs through the books pages and you might want to add weight for extra tension) and a coffee cup to keep the spool of thread from running around the house. You can turn the rod by hand to dry the epoxy (if you do thin coats) and you are all set to go.

Oh, a sharp pair of scissors and some single edge razor blades.

Have fun and remember, it wasn't any of us who got you addicted! cwm27.gif
