Rod Lathes and Accessories for Custom Fishing Rod Building
Lathes will make your rod building projects more efficient. We stock Pacific Bay and Alps rod lathes as they have a reputation for being well designed, functional and durable. Both are powerful enough to shape cork and EVA, bind guides onto the blank and apply epoxy. Both Pacific Bay and Alps have an upgrade available to the "precision head chuck". The precision chuck gives greater control and a firmer clamp onto the object on the lathe, particularly useful if turning cork and EVA. The rod lathe has a second "mode" which is a drying mode for a slow turn during the epoxy drying stage.
