I'm glad I built a rod building jig. Its seen allot of action and recently I used it to repair a newish Bait caster rod. I was at Rice's mkt in Bucks county during Covid. A guy had this rod for one dollar and it barely looked like it had ever been used. So I replaced the eye today using some part I had and so no purchased were made. I still have to varnish it. It is surprising how heavy some of these old school Ugly Stiks are and so it will either troll or catfish.
