Tube - is protection for rods. Homemade Tube
For safety of a spinning when transporting or storing it is worth purchasing a tube. And it's easier to do it yourself, as this will reduce costs and provide an opportunity to create the most comfortable design for yourself.
The advantages of a homemade tube
The tube isA very convenient device for storing and transporting spinning, feeder and float rods. It will provide full protection for rods during a fishing trip or simply when stored in a closet. And also the tube protects them from precipitation, snow, rain, dirt. This ensures the rod longer life.
Rod for rodsis a must have for an experienced and avid fisherman. In addition to protection against mechanical damage, it provides ease when transporting several spinning rods for fishing. You can buy a tube in almost any fishing store. But to make it yourself will not be difficult and will provide an opportunity to make its design to your taste.
Materials for production
The most common method in the manufacture of the tube is the use of sanitary pipe. It will not give much weight to the baggage, it is strong enough when it hits and falls, and it does not create discomfort when fishing.
Everyone can choose the material in accordance with their preferences, since each fishing rod is individual and its dimensions and dimensions must be taken into account.
Before you start makingdo-it-yourself tubeyou need to prepare the necessary materials and tools. In this case, such materials are well suited:
- PVC pipe (the length of which is determined by the need for the rod, diameter 5 cm).
- Material for obtyagivaniya.
- Foam rubber and accessories (buttons, rivets).
For ease of manufacture, you need to have on hand tools such as a thin black marker, a ruler, and a hacksaw for metal.
You need to start with the measurement of the longest link rod. To the result of the measurement you will need to add 4-6 cm of foam rubber. Sincethe tube issafety for spinning, this material must be laid on its bottom. Instead of foam rubber, you can also use material from a sponge for washing dishes or foamed polypropylene. They will also ensure the reliability of the gear.
Next you need to take the workpiece and measure the desired length.The extra part will need to be cut. After that, it may be necessary to scrape this side with a fine sandpaper from scoring. The sawn part will go to the bottom of the cover. A perfectly flat side is left to cover.
At the next stage, you need to insert a butt into the pipe and see how well it is moving inside. Next, you need to bend the workpiece so that it takes the form of an oval. After that, the butt will begin to move more freely through the pipe. Therefore, spinning would be better to sit in a tube. The shape of the oval will fix it better.
Moving to the stage of manufacturing the cap for the tube, you should make two holes at the bottom. They are needed to fix the softening material.
From the material that is in stock, we cut the part to fit the tube and grab it with ties. You can also put it on glue. Then there will be no need to make holes in the workpiece.
At this stage you need to make a cover for the tube. For this it is better to take the material from the skin. From it you need to cut the part 3 mm larger than the profile of the workpiece. This is necessary so that the cover does not fall into the case.You will need 2-3 pieces of similar leather parts. They are glued together to give the lid the required thickness. It is better if it reaches 2 cm. After all the layers are glued together, you can mount a small loop on the cover for easy access.
At the final stage of product creationspinning tubeshould be covered with material. The choice of fabric for each individual. It can be either leather or jeans or tarpaulin.
Starting to sew a case worth the bottom. You need to move smoothly along the longitudinal seam. It is worth considering that such a line should be held at an angle of at least 90 degrees. Fabric with tight tubing is worth taking with stock. This will correct the size of the cover.
The fabric should not hang out or move out when using the tube. Therefore, it is worth very tightly fitting the workpiece material. And it's better to miss it with silicate glue. This will contribute to a more efficient setting of this material with the tube. The final seam is worth doing nylon thread. For better reliability, you must walk through the fabric a couple of times.
After the trim is finished, the fabric must be unscrewed and put on the tube. When stretching the tube it is necessary to follow the seam so that it does not twist.Only after the cover is put on the workpiece, the excess fabric can be trimmed. But it is recommended to leave a couple of centimeters for opalka. This is to ensure that the fabric is not disheveled.
At the final stage it remains to make a pen.The tube isprotection for rods. But it should also provide comfort in movement. The handle is better to do the fabric that was used for belts. Such material does not stretch and is more reliable in operation. The length of the handle is selected individually. It should provide comfortable movement.
Having considered the entire procedure for making a homemade tube, everyone can create a similar product with their own hands.
