guide wrapping

Hi all,
I got a tip on how to apply guides to the rod prior to wrapping. The tip was to apply Duco cement to the bottom foot or feet of the guide and position the guide on the rod. The glue dries fairly quickly, and it is very easy to wrap the guides in this fashion. Previously I had been wrapping thin strips of tape, and constantly had problems with the guides moving before I was finished wrapping. I hope this tip is helpful for a few members. It cut my rod wrapping time in half.
All the best,
Eric
