DIY: Rod building table

Recommended Posts

This is something that my Dad and I built, it's still not entirely done, there is a little bit more sanding to do. We built it with a table saw. Dowels and epoxy are holding all the pieces of wood that is upright in place. The turner is a roast turner for campfires.

 

We made this one look like Ron Hagens rod building table

Good stuff Ian :clap::clap: . You've got me beat all to H. I started a rod table last Xmas and although I've got the base and some moveable supports, it's not nearly as far along as yours :( . Still thinking about motors and such :blink: . Terry

Ian,

 

Couple of things you might like to consider:

 

1] Multi output shafts from your motor so that several rods can be turned @ the same time. If you want pics of my turner - I'll shoot some - It can turn 4 sections @ the same time.

2] Lining your rod supports with felt. I use sheet felt from craft stores. One layer seems to do it.

 

3] You rod supports may tend to "rock" a tad when wrapping. The bases of the supports you made may be a tad undersized.

 

 

catch ya'

Don,

 

Please post those photos! Like I said I wasn't completly done with it, but I was going to put felt lining on it. I tried it with this furniture padding stuff we have, but I thought it was too stiff.

 

 

Thanks!

Ian,

 

Here are some photos of the tunrer I use. The turner is only used to turn rods to let the wrap coatings dry. A rod wrapper is another set of tools.

 

For whateve reason, this program would only allow me to show 2 pics. The address for the others is below.

 

If you have any questions, give a shout.

 

 

Don
