Matched Rod Delamination

If it can be screwed up, torn, bent broken, bloodied, I've done it.  I have put my arm in the lathe gears, broken rods on the lathe trying to turn them without stabilizing them, miscalculated my form setting.  Used nondrying varnish, Hell, I've done it all, but the most traumatic was not my fault.  HONESTLY.  I made two matched rods side by side, and spent long hours of loving care on them.  Finally I was done, and took them out to the lawn to cast them, and completely delaminated both rods in two or three casts.  And that was using Nunley's favorite glue.  (NOT MINE!!!!!!)  (Ralph Moon)
