    thanks for the advice, I am only looking at 2-3 right now, a couple rebuilds bringing the old school back to life, I hope anyway....I have a thing with the old conolon blanks since John g redid one a few years ago.....it fishes so well and looks as good.....something about the natural fiber glass look when it's done I have a thing for now.
    I was going to use a end of a rod for a tensioner (hold tension) unless I can find some spring still to make one....I have thought of using a light door spring for that purpose too....kinda trial and error

    Bill I found a small rotisserie motor for a gas grill. It sounds rough but it does have variable speed adjust. I'm gonna take it apart and clean and lube it. If you still need something I'll let you or anybody else that may want it know how it turns out.

    I think this is the chuck I used but I'm not sure. It's been 5 or 6 years ago since I built it.

    The motor we use is a Dayton 2M066A, 1/15HP,5000RPM. A 3/4 inch pully on the motor and a 2'' on the chuck.

    I am going to try it first with the cups I made and see if it holds up to the winding....it did great on the finishing ....the clutch was just a adjusted thru bolt with neoprene washers ....I will loose all that and lock it down for the tying .....the rubber cups hold real well ....but may need to change if they don't on the winding

    Thanks to all......for all the great advice and help haven't done anything with it due to work for the Holiday shutdowns around here.....working on my 600 hrs allowed after retirement.....still working on my CDL class A license .....won't be long for that

    Found a cheap rod dryer on mudhole, not sure about the quality but I'm gonna order one soon, and would 9 rpm or 18 rpm better for drying?

    Don't go cheap on rod drying motors. You can end up regretting it in the long run. I have 4 flexcoat motors setup on my drying table. I use 1-18 and the rest are 6rpm. I use the 18 for applying finish and the 6 rpm motors once the finish has set a bit. A wise person once told me that the more rpms something turns the quicker it will wear out. And so far that has proven to be true.
