Thread: Bamboo

  1. #1

    Default Bamboo

    I have a set of planing forms made by Barry Grantham (Lincoln) a binder and everything else for making Bamboo rods, these forms will also allow you to make swelled butts as well. There is a lathe, copper varnish dipping tube, block planes, setting clock, lots of guides, tools, silks, bamboo, blank turner, heat gun, glue and a book by Wayne Catternach which easily explains how to, with lots of pics and many tapers. The reason for selling, I am moving to Japan and have no where to put them or even the possibility to have a workshop. I have been making rods as a hobby for about 10yrs now under the name Andrew Victor. I had a lot of advice and tips from the Chapman brothers where I used to buy my ferrules and other sundries, I can pass these tips on. This is a complete set up ready to make bamboo rods. The lathe is included if you want it, it is old Randa lathe ( Randa Lathes ) which is perfectly servicable and will fit on a small bench about 3ft long this come with 4 and 3 jaw chucks and has various cogs for screw cutting which I never used and lot of cutting tools, it is single phase motor. If anyone is interested I am in Brighton. You can contact me via PM. You will have to come to Brighton to collect. If you wish to see the above you are more than welcome to view it or ask any questions. I am not asking stupid money, cheaper than buying one. I will PM you the price.

    Hi Yardbent.
    I wasnt sure where to put it, so thought rod building would be best, this is essentialy aimed at rodbuilders and is not something you see for sale that often. If admin wishes to move it to the appropriate forsale section I am happy. I havnt put a price, but given an indication, it mainly depends on whether they want the lathe as well and the myriad of hand tools. Anyone giving it serious consideration to start or try building bamboo rods will be happy to pm for the price. Thankyou for the goodluck on my new life in Japan. My wife is Japanese she is there already with my two daughters, I am left here sorting things out, tying up loose ends and get my visa, hopefuly will be there in next 2 months. We will be living in Chiba prefecture, unfortunately this area is not known for its flying fishing.
