    sooo, I checked everything on the video and looks pretty nice and easy to follow.

    I just need some help on how to find the spine on the blank and how mi amigo SaltyDawg just after installing the reelseat checked for the spine again and with few moves on the blank found it, corrected the reelseat and finished.

    I know experience is everything, but boy, Bill makes the things looks pretty easy, sometimes is hard to follow for a rod builder Hobbyist.

    Yes it is! Every inch of knowledge you get from the masters (SD,JT, DC, ST, DOC, KB, LA, ..) is golden. Savor the mentorship, respect it, pass it on! It is an art!

    Been splining blanks by hand for over forty years. The gizmos are great..........but if you can't find them by hand, you must not feel the difference when you're pulling on a fish. It's not rocket science.

    Just my two cents
