    It's actually for a friend. I built one for myself a bunch of years ago, and a friend saw it recently and wanted one. I haven't been able to work due to shoulder and hip surgeries for almost 15 months; finally pain free and ready to get back to making sawdust!

    Nice piece of kit and almost enough holes in it! Nice wooden stuff is cool.

    I got these made for me by a friend of mine for Christmas, wax pot, couple of needles and cleaner / stand, dubbing brush a a decent sized stacker which is superb for spring sized tubes.

    Default rod rack

    I have a rod rack a little like that!
    I never used it though so was a total waste of money.............................................

    from a company in USA called "Signature Concepts" I think

    seemed like a good idea at the time
