End of Butt??

7 posts in this topic

Hey fellas

I use a automotive plug for the end of tennessee grips on my spinning rods and ice rods. Problem is there is a very big inconsistentsy in getting them. I found them at Ace hardware and everytime I get them they are different sizes. Anyone have any info on where I can get something similar and in bulk. My rod suppleir doesn't have anything close to this

GooseBilly,

Can you post a pic of it? Or even a better description, I am not sure what you talking about.

I don't have a pic at the moment. But the plug goes directly into the butt of the rod blank and is flanged on the head of the plug to cover the the reamed/drilled hole in the cork. Black plastic is the color and material of it.

Are you talking about automotive door and trim plugs? Sounds like that would work well and look clean. Try a auto part store. Its a common item.

auto trim plugs work very nicely.

When I've built rods for my kids and grandsons, I just epoxy the hole closed and epoxy on an Indian head penney that 100 years older than they are. Especially with the young ones, it minimizes the fights over who's rod is who's.

Is this what you are looking for. If so, I did a quick search on line for "auto trim plugs" and found it.

    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
    • What do you have against Japanese Beetles?   Diversity is good.   We need all nationalities of beetles.  Even VW beetles.   Asian Lady Beetles, everything.  All nationality and gender identity beetles. 
    • Tysons chicken tender, Top sirloin steak, pork chop, burgers seasoned to taste - crispy crowns, tutor tots, fries - beer batter shore lunch Walleye, Crappie all better than deep fryer, oven or gas grill. Just do potato first & keep hot in oven at 250. Even Spam is better than pan fryed but if your under 40 you may not have a clue about Spam.
    • Yes spray it, or wipe it down with an oiled paper towel before you use it.  I use a little ball of aluminum foil to scrub them after the cook, but while they are still warm. They make disposable grill topper grates that are handy too when you are cooking something that is going to be really messy.
    •   Non-matching carpet and drapes have been known to cause numerous issues, too, with or without beetles, especially in Los Angeles. Keep the hamsters safe by putting in a zip-loc bag during spraying.
