Delamination?

Post by Fredline » Thu May 24, 2018 8:45 am

If this is delamination then the tip section of this 11’ Sowerbutts Avon rod has it in spades.Image
If you have no grease with you, and your rings are full of ice, do not cut out the ice with a pen-knife but get your man to put the rings one by one in his mouth, and so to thaw the ice.

Lovely whisk John 👌
I walked across an empty land
I knew the pathway like the back of my hand
I felt the earth beneath my feet
Sat by the river and it made me complete.

That is a lot of delanination. What will be the fate of the rod? Are you going to try and fix it?

Call it work in progress. When I make a batch of Araldite I use the excess to glue up another section. The tip had originally been close whipped every quarter of an inch in 3 different colours, a restorers nightmare. Watch this space.Image

I think that was a rare Sowerbutts Eel Spear and you've ruined it!

11 foot Avon, I bet that is going to be a lovely rod once you have finished it. Good luck with the restoration and I look forward to hearing of its first outing and christening.

It is 9'. I do not know where the 11' came from. I have just repaired the ferrule on a Sowerbutts 10' Avon and then realised that it was much bigger than this example. Sorry for the confusion. The top is now glued and straight and ready for the ferrule fitting.
