Rod drying motors

Post by darklake » Wed Jan 03, 2018 8:02 pm

Does anyone have any experience with the CRB (Custom Rod Builders) rod drying motor that sells for about $40? I build a rod or so a year, so I don't need anything too fancy, but I would like something that actually performs as advertised, isn't a hassle to use, and won't break in a year or two. Here's a link:

I used that rod dryer last week. Works well and is very easy to use.

A quick update -- I bought the Flex Coat 6 rpm dryer (about $80) and have been happy with it after two rods. Nothing fancy, but quiet and easy to use. It has a rubber diaphragm that you jam the butt of the rod into, and I guess the test will be to see how long that holds up. But so far so good.
