An excellent reply by Leprechaun. Thanks Lep.

BNLG type guides are used on most of the rods I build. Remember to grind the hump off the end of the guide feet. Make it a flat angle up the guide foot ramp about 2/3's of the way. Then debur/polish the ground away area. The idea of this is to hopefully make the guide feet more flexible and hopefully retard the time before the epoxy cracks at the end of the foot. This new ramp allows the thread to slide up the ramp while wrapping.

Make sure you get the epoxy into the tunnel formed by the thread coming over the guide foot and before the thread touches the blank. Filling this cavity on both sides prevents the guide from sliding sideways.
