Rod Wrapper



I finished building a rod wrapper / rod dryer this weekend. I bought the motor from Jann's Netcraft. http://www.jannsnetcraft.com/rod-wrapper-parts/028090500002.aspx . I picked up some bolts & nuts at the hardware store. The rest of the build was materials I had. I used an old lamp to power the motor. Used an empty mono line spool and hair tie timing belt to slow the factory 36 RPM to 17 RPM. Now my blank and components just need to arrive and I'm ready to build my first.
