Winding Check
This may sound like a dumb question, but what is a winding check for?

I've had them sent in packages of rod building supplies before but found no use for them. Are they some sort of tool for controlling winding thread?

Being a novice myself please correct me if I am wrong. I believe the purpose of the winding check is to finish off the connection between the cork grip, blank and where you start the butt wrap. In my case it covered up the less than perfect honing of the grip, hiding small gaps between the grip and blank.

Thanks Jim. I think you're right. I couldn't figure it out because I bored out the grip on the first rod I made so the reel seat fit about a 1/4" into it rather than butting up against it.

the check does go snug against the start tof the cork you used for a grip , it does cover any gap where the rod comes out of the front of your cork. then you butt your wrap up against it. Tom D
