Hi All, I am brand new to Rod Building .org (just 15 min ago) and I am a real newbe. My first question is what is a comfortable dimension for the V-slots on the rod wrapper, or is it advisable to make the V slots adjustable. I have never used a rod wrapper and from all that I have read it is a very tedious job and I need some guidance. I do a lot of reading and watched Youtube but there was no dimensions anywhere,Thank you very much for any assistance. Nick R.

yes they should be adjustable on the base not necessary for the up right
the v slots should be at least 2 inches deep and about 6 inches tall to the top your base can be as long as you want most are 8 ft.

The best day to be alive is always tomorrow !!
Think out side the box when all else fails !!!

Welcome,
Spend a bit of time in the site library across the top.
Plans for a rod wrapping jig and many other interesting articles are in there.

Thank you all for your rapid response, I am building this wrapper similar to the Sully but with lots of personal changes. For instance mounting and torquing the thread at different points and now with your assistance I will make the V notches movable from 3" to about 7" above the base. I will post pictures when it's all done, again thank you all. Nick R.
