    Hey guys...thanks for posting your awesome work and sharing the rod building tips. I am starting my 3rd rod and fear that I have become addicted to the craft. Now I need some decent tools.
    Who makes the best reamers for cork? I currently have just one from Dan Craft that consists of the ground up grit glued on a piece of blank. It works fine but think it's going to wear out quickly and I need at least one larger diameter.
    Thanks,
    Chris

    Batson Enterprises has all the tools and rod building supplies you would need. Give them a call or order from there sight. Karry Batson is an awesome guy and the prices are good. That is where I get all my stuff and rod kits. I have one ready to go now, it's a Rainshadow 8'6"5wt 4pc and also a DobR Lil' Streamer at 5' 5wt 2pc. Can't wait to start.

    I buy RAT files from a goood woodworking shop=they are metal relatively cheap and will never wear out on cork-they of course are round[thus RAT TAIL] and come in many sizes and cutting surfaces-also use them in my wood work.

    Thanks guys. I have been getting some stuff from Carol at Utmost and she's been good.
    Yammy, are those tapered rat files?
