bill karr came by today, we shot the bull for a while and before he left, he had a suggestion.  why not have a board where a beginner can ask a quick question.  ok, i can do that!!!!  admittedly, things have gotten a crowded here.  there is a lot of information and i would imagine it can be a little intimidating.  

ok, so this is a board for pretty much any question you want to ask, no matter how simple, silly or trivial it might seem.  we'll see how this works out!!!!   Grin

edit:  questions will likely sit here for a while and then get moved if it seems more appropriate for another board.

Joe, I found the plans for this work bench on line and have been pleased with the layout and the space it affords. It's 6' long, but could easily have been 8; I didn't have that much room. I've taken over my oldest (moved away) daughter's room, and I use her empty bureau drawers for storage. It's working well for me.

That's nice Sid. Very functional. The only problem I can see is that your Giants sign should be black and orange Grin

Hi,

I would suggest keeping the reel area seperate to rod work, as all the oils and greases never quite get cleaned away from the area, and could get on the rods. Any oils, grease or silicone on your rods will never do well with 2 part resins.

We do rods and reels in the same room, but totaly seperate benches.

Cheers

If you aren't a die hard woodworker, nightstands and/or short dressers are great to start workbenches. The drawers seem to be just the right size.

I wouldn't blame them, when this thing heat up, it will get messy quickly.
I think we have it right now, the new members can easily ask questions about a particular reel they're looking for, or anything else.
This new one will get loaded with different subjects going in all directions.
We have things nicely separated now. I don't believe this one will work....just my opinion.

Forget about all the reasons why something may not work. You only need to find one good reason why it will.

I'll give it a try... here's a ? I don't know where it belongs

Is SaltX necessary?

or...

Is a freshwater rinse of rod & reel after the salt boat ride adequate?

Thanks,

Steve

naw, anything is fine!  i never use salt away or salt x.  just a fresh water rinse and towel dry, then a spritz of corrosion x and good wipe down.

Tim, (he said, trying not to take offense) a Giants logo would look absolutely ridiculous in black and orange! That logo was from a weave I did on one of my rod builds.

It's a bicycle wrench. Used to get them included in a leather case attached to the saddle.

At least that what it looks like to me.

That is, in fact, a bicycle wrench. We used to call them Shimano wrenches. Work for spokes, transmissions and bottom brackets even.

I have one that is similar but it doesn't have the stepped opening on the right...No idea what it was orginally for...As for the one in your photo, my guess would be it pairs with a musical instrument of some sort?
