I want to build a new power wrapper. My old experimental wrapper just is not cutting it anymore. Curious if anyone had any good ideas or plans. Appreciate any help. Thanks.

Advanced Custom Rod Building by Dale Clemens has info, maybe a little outdated.

Try the archives in and

Stop in local tackle shops and ask to see their setup.

There are fine lathes sold in catalogs that serve the amateur to the professional wrappers. They range in price $300+ to over $700.

If you build many rods or a few but would like a very nice toy go for one. It will make wrapping more enjoyable.

Thanks so much for sharing those pics of your bench and set-up... VERY inspirational and I got a bunch of ideas just from your pics. I'm sure your pics are just what Billy40 is looking for cause he is looking to put a bench together. BTW, if you need help to clean up your bench, just make sure the Ben Franklin is there... ;)
