Next is cutting the ends for the ferrules then glueing them on.

You'd think a 7' rod would be two 3.5' foot sections, but if you did that it would be about a 1/2" too short. So you have to do some measuring to get the sections the same length in two pieces apart that add up to 7' put together. The simple way is to add 1/2 the male slide length to the tip section and take away 1/2 on the female.

Anyhow

The guide makers are pretty easy. I made three sets. You stick a piece of wire in, give them a twist, and presto a snake guide. It does take some cutting and hammering to get them just right.
