208 pp. [1994] The Restoration Handbook is wire bound for easy use on your workbench. An indispensable reference for anyone interested in identifying, collecting or restoring old bamboo rods. Covers all aspects of restoration: identifying the maker & era of unmarked rods, stripping old finish, salvaging original labels & hardware, rewrapping, applying the final finish & much more. It also includes the most complete guide ever assembled of original bamboo rod specifications. 11x8 inches. First published in 1994. It was the only book of its kind at the time - and it still is. This volume picks up where Stu Kirkfield's "The Bamboo Fly Rod : A Master's Secrets of Restoration" stopped. Very little of Kirkfield's work is rehashed. Instead I chose to discuss in detail the things Stu didn't discuss. The Restoration Handbook has become the " Rod Restorer's "Bible" because it contains the original specifications for hundreds of bamboo rod models made by the most prolific rod companies in the USA.
