I have been reveiwing many of the drying wheel posts and it seems there is a mix of both vert and hor drying axis wheels. I built mine on the horizontal axis -

What is the advantages of going vertical?

I think both rotate all points on the lure's surface through 360 degrees to obtain the same result: the clearcoat stays where you put it. To me, going vertical or horizontal is a question of ease of attachment to the fixture. As long as your rpm is moderately slow (mine is 4 rpm) centrifugal force will not have significant effect.
