I have asked in the past for rod repair help and no one seems to know. So I thought we could have a thread  to plug our local repair guys. This is the closest guy I know of near Lake Perris.
He works out of his garage and has replaced a couple of rod guides for me on various salt and fresh water poles. I highly recommend him for work here in the IE.

I repair my own but usually after I have snapped them, not with a guide problem. Guides are easy though as the thread is easy to buy and clear rod varnish is all you need to cover it. Even 5 min epoxy will work. Don't be afraid to try it.

Nothing more local than my own garage hey. Do you have v blocks or tools to spin the rod while you work? A picture maybe?

Hi Jerdon, you should be able to make your own jig by cutting two short pieces of 2x4, cutting a V notch in one end of each and then screwing them upright to a horizontal piece of 2x4. Glue a little felt in each notch and you have a hand powered spinner you can store in the corner of your garage.
There is always something you cannot do yourself but if you can do it, there is nothing better than the feeling of accomplishment that comes with it.
