I want to build my own fishing rod repair station.
This will be (I hope) my first out of many projects!
I’d really like to know if you guys and gals out there would like to help me out with my first starting endeavour.
It is basically a workbench with a simple RPM adjustable motor with start/stop/reverse functions controlled by a foot switch that consists of a small motor plus two support beams a few feet apart for supporting the fishing rod blank, with each beam having two ball bearings slightly apart for the rod blank to “sit” on them for a smooth controlled rotation.
The motor would connect to the fishing rod blank either with a small pulley system or with a chuck similar to those on dremel tools to clamp on the rod blank or maybe some other ingenious idea?
I’d like to have the option of being able to set the RPMs (1~30 RPMs) for continuous autonumous rotation over several hours for applying epoxy coatings on the rods and leaving it to dry and a maximum of around 100 RPM’s for wrapping the thread line for the new rod line guides…
So, my question is… What parts would I need to make this happen?
Thanks in advance everyone!
