SPLICING A BREAK IN A BAMBOO ROD


SPLICING A BREAK IN A BAMBOO ROD

By W. S. Cocswtu.

I happen to be the proud possessor of a Heddon casting rod that has been in continual use for the past eight years. While landing a fish one day last summer, said rod gave up the fight. On examination I found the bamboo had become loosened in the butt and on removing the butt I found that the continual run of water in the handle during its years of service had rotted two strips of bamboo. This rod, being an old pal of mine on many fishing trips, I at once declined to lay it away. So I will try to the best of my ability to explain how I repaired my rod.

After removing the handle I glued the broken strips together. Then I gouged the center of each strip one-sixteenth of an inch and inlaid copper an eighth of an inch wide and one-sixteenth of an inch thick in each gouge across the broken joints. Then putting the rod back into the butt, I took No. 22 copper wire and, starting from the ferrule, wound it closely together down on the rod over projecting copper strips and slipped the end of wire alongside the copper strip under winding. After rubbing soldering paste on the wire winding, I then took hot solder and poured on winding and wiped off solder with a waxed cloth. That left the winding as smooth as a plumber wipes a joint Using sandpaper to smooth out rough spots, my rod was as good as new. Enclosed you will find a drawing which I think will explain my method more clearly than I have written it.
