Need help - How to cut a bamboo fly rod?
I need to cut a 2.5 - 3.0 inch section from an old bamboo fly rod that I have and am wondering if I need a special or high speed saw to do this with out splintering the end sections that I need?
I will cut it from the butt end so I get a thicker section.
(You are probably wondering why.....I found an old advertisement from Heddon that was put inside the bottom of the boxes that lures came in. The advertisement originally held a section of bamboo rod that was used to show how well made Heddon's rods had been. It is in fantastic shape but with out the piece of rod.)
Any help would be appreciated.
