Does the wrapping jig in the kit that you got basically consist of a flat board, two upright pieces of wood cut into 'V' shapes lined with felt, some dowels, and a tread tensioner?


My wrapping jig consists of a cardboard box from the apple orchard because I'm lazy and never tapped the guy I know who does this stuff to do that stuff by suggesting I'll make a donation to TU in his name.

My Cabelers kit is materials only, no fancy jigs.

If you had to take some kind of guess, what would you say the speed of rotation of the drying motor is?

How fast do you think I can spin my hand? Did you catch the part about "materials only?"

I think the drying motor on mine is 9 rpm. I built one with a bobbin, one with a homemade jig, then got my power rod wrapper. It's an American Tackle Company model, and I think it cost like 200 bucks. If you plan on building more than two, don't kid yourself, buy the wrapper. It cuts your time wrapping to about a tenth, and gives you the option of turning your own cork and drying your finish smoothly. If you'd like to spend time that you could be fishing and tying flies wrapping guides, have at it. No thanks for me.

Thanks for the proper link. Its definitely worth building one, you really dont have to be too handy, if you can cut the wood to size and simply wood glue the pieces together youre good to go.

Thetonyage, Can you (or anyone) give me more info on how you added the motor? I was thinking that it wouldn't take a very powerful motor to turn a rod blank. I was just brainstorming and thinking that I could pull the motor out of an old toy (rc car or something) and connect it to a dimmer switch for variable speed. I'm not an electrician but I do know how to solder...I love homemade projects like this!
