Hi Tony:

I am more interested re bamboo rods as I have one in the corner that is in need 
of refurbishment but so far have not found the time to do. You might as well 
send the graphite methods as there is always something one can learn.
No hurry Tony. Just when things are ok and you are feeling up to 
it………………………...Nev
