|New Concept Cork Drills
Recently introduced in RodMaker Magazine, Flex Coat's "New Concept" Cork Drills are easy to use and a
HUGE time saver. Pre-formed Cork Grips can be quickly and easily re-bored in a matter of seconds, rather
than the time consuming, tedious method of increasing the grip's I.D. with a series of Files and Reamers.
New Concept Cork Drills are available with full instructions from Flex Coat in three ready to use sizes.
|Cork & Handle Tools
|Cork & EVA Reamers
|25' roll of cloth backed 36 grit reamer
abrasive. Wrapped & glued onto a piece
of old blank stock makes fast work of
fitting reel seats, arbors, cork, EVA and
Hypalon grips. "Coated" abrasive
doesn't lose grit like "glued on grit" type
razor wands, so you don't have to worry
about pieces of grit sticking inside your
grips and scratching your blank!
Includes instructions on how to build
your own custom reamers.

almost any hand drill. Sturdy, commercial duty. This lathe is fantastic for shaping

|New larger roll! Far superior to masking tape
bushings for mounting reel seats. This mesh tape
allows the epoxy to go all the way through the
bushing, from the seat to the blank for a fail safe
bond. "Builds up" twice as fast as masking tape
with a thickness of .008" versus most masking
tapes at .003"-.004" 2" X 300' roll. We cut this
into 1/2" - 3/4" strips, (or simply cut in half) then
wrap it into bushings 1/4" apart under the length
of the reel seat.
Self Adhesive !!
|Simply place your rod's butt end in the PVC end cap and stretch the securing disc to the end
of the foregrip or winding check... leave it on your rod to cure overnight for tighter handles!
|CRB Steel Mandrels
|18" Oil hardened steel mandrels with 60° taper in each end for live center. These
mandrels have been designed for use in turning cork and EVA handles. Now includes a
pair of adjustable, removable collars to secure your handle in place while you shape it.
