cool... I forgot about rotating the rod... makes sense.

right now, I'm just trying to rig up a drying wheel for fly tying out of an old turntable

Looks like you want your rod to match the table cloth!

well, had a few hours to work on the final steps of my rod, 1st coat on the threads and while it looks ,,,,,,,,,, OK, I see where I made a mistake. Too much coating under the guide itself left me with micro spots like when the coater is first mixed in the cup.
Hopefully the second coat, which I will put on lighter will mask it.
Other than that, lookin pretty good for a true first rod in 25 yrs.
