Read the thread above. He no longer lists them, but his contact details are & there maybe pictures in the Game rods section http://peregrinerods.co.uk/contact-peregrine.htmSuperb collection of inserts. I would be interested in where you get your hardware as I sometimes need to replace just the butt cap and thread section. Any help would be appreciated.
Hi Anzac,I was under the impression that all wood dust was harmful to the lungs as asbestos, and/or carcinogenic.
So burnt cork mixed with natural and then glued together for cactus styles and the coloured burl is just dyed and mixed. Downside of burl it is very slightly heavier but the upside is it's much more sensitive so great for nymphing and streamer rodsDoesn't make me pine for it, I'm afraid.
Nah, there's always two!
Being serious for a moment, how is the effect in the cactus burl cork produced (least I assume it's cork?)
Thanks Jimmy, this wood is still fairly green so has been packed away in a box full of ultra dry wood shavings, the current moisture content reading is 24% and I need it at about 14% before I start turning it. I'll check it in a month or soBeautiful.....looking forward to seeing the end product Jay..
Cutting open burrs is one of my favourite jobs in wood turning, you never know what you're going to get.Wood is an amazing material, the variety of colours, shades, hues and grains, I used to go into Crudgingtons in Bath and if they were not too busy just look at the shotgun stock blanks!
Most interesting, I found a big very old elder root and got a stick handle out of it a very hard dark amber colour with black spalting.
