If you want to make a Do-It-Yourself hand rod wrapper, this is the one part that is not easy to find in your local hardware store. The assembly maintains steady tension on the wrapping thread for perfect wrapping, and the knurled knob makes adjustment of the tension quick and easy.

Other Details

To mount the tension adjuster on your rod wrapper, drill a 3/16" hole to a depth of 1/4" in the base, positioned between the spool post and the thread guide. A turn of thread is placed around the center post between the 2 metal disks and the pressure of the disks on the thread is adjusted by tightening the knurled nut. This compresses a spring, exerting pressure on the disks.

I bought this at the recommendation of a friend. If you are going to make your own hand wrapper you want one of these. This is by far the best $7 I have ever spent. This provides the same tension guide ofer guide no matter what guide you are wrapping from the base of the rod to the tip. I have tried everything before this and now wish I would have gotten this at the start of my rod wrapping. Don't hesitate just buy it you won't be sorry

rod wrapper tension adjuster

Reviewer: A viewer from Millinocket, ME US

This is a great find, I previously had one of these tension adjusters I had purchased in the early 80's. It was getting grooved from over 200 rods since purchase, never thought I would find another like it, thanks for the great product and it is worth its weight in gold.

Works great

Got tired of adjusting tension through a phone book. Now I don't have to worry about if the tension changes from guide to guide.

a must have for a home built wrapper

Reviewer: A viewer from Bedford, NS CA

I built my wrapper myself and bought one of these to put on it. I just drilled a hole and pushed it in place it works awesome!

Must have

Reviewer: A viewer from Greensboro, NC US

Buy this without hesitation. Unless you prefer the awkward and uncomfortable chair method of sitting on the thread from a cup dangled under a chair to keep tension ( and who would), this ingenious little spring mechanism is your tension holding savior. Never will wrap again without it.
