I'm building a rod while I do housecleaning. I use a very cheap rotating motor to coat threads, which I bought about 20 years ago. It still works fine.
This time, I'm making a rod handle, too. It is a Fuji handle with a very short rubber grip. When I made long (double handed and semi-double handed) ones a few years ago, I had some rubber rings left over. I use three of them and made one for float tube fishing. I have not glued them, yet, and am just doing a frial fitting, but it look very nice, isn't it?
