Home Made Power Rod Warper

3 posts in this topic

If you can find an old sewing machine, you can salvage the motor, foot pedal, thread tension device etc, etc. You just need to get some sort of chuck/pulley combo with a bunch of felt lined V blocks to cradle the rod blank. If you can find some tongue and groove siding for the bases they won't fall out on get out of alignment. Some day i will figure out how to add pictures to my posts and will take a picture of the rod winder I made 35 years ago or so. Hope my description helps.
