I agree with Matthew on this one.

I learned from folks who used 5 inches to the center of the rod, and I have continued the tradition with making all of my rod supports so that the rod center is 5 inches from the base of the wrapper or dryer.

Good luck

How does the altitude of a rod dryer affect how epoxy cures on the rod blank?

It doesn't.
But the correct altitude does make the application easier.

I use the same rod rests for my rods when either wrapping or drying so they are the same height.

After doing some experimenting, I found that 5 inches is a nice compromise to be able to nicely see the rod when working as well as when wrapping guides for arm comfort and ease of use.

Good luck
