    Leland on Custom Rod Thread Art

    Most custom rod builders are always searching for new decorative thread patterns with which to distinguish their rods. The interest, enjoyment, and rewards have been so great that a separate art form has emerged. This book is a response to the endless search for new patterns and an in-depth exploration of design and advanced thread techniques. Over 100 separate patterns, never before published, are pictured with step-by-step wrapping instructions. Equally important are 24 different "design variations", almost all of which are applicable to each of the patterns. The total number of different patterns thereby provided becomes mathematically gigantic. In addition, there is an entire section on how to easily and simply design your own patterns. The terms simplify understanding and wrapping even the most complex wraps. Any pattern can be reduced to 2 simple elements: 1) Layout, and 2) Wrapping Sequence.
    • The fastest methods of wrapping the threads and how much tension to use where
    • Methods for accurately and rapidly laying out the wrap

    • quickly fill in the background on a closed wrap

    • Recording details of a wrap for future reference
    • The best techniques of tightening a pattern for professional results
    • A solution to the problem of making Closed Wraps on even sharply tapered blanks
    • Numerous easy ways of fitting in the last threads in a closed wrap for solid thread covering
