Rod Building Question

Metho can work as as a lube to help slide the eva. However, metho is a great cleaning agent for epoxy (Araldite if your using it, I believe there are better options, but thats a different story. Use the 24hr high strength stuff if you need to use araldite.) I would be worried that eva wetted with metho would squeegee off alot the epoxy applied to the blank and cause weak join.

The epoxy glue will also act as a great lube to slide/expand the eva. I apply more epoxy than neccesary and slide the eva on that. Then clean off the excess with a clean rag moistened with metho.

If you need to soften the eva, put it in the sun or a warm spot for half an hour.
