Flytyer - Yes, I have tried that, however I find that the thumbscrews don't grip the rod well even when coated with vinyl. I'd be more inclined to stretch rubber-bands across the thumbscrews and use them to hold the blank, but I just figured that a solid grip 360 degrees around the blank with soft rubber would do the trick. Haven't had a chance to look for stoppers yet, but will do so in the next few days.
