    1458 seems to be a model number of early Horrocks Ibbetson glass rods. If there is a line size (It may be too old for that) it will be three letters i.e. hgh etc.

    Tying quill segment wings isn't all that hard. It's just another technique to learn. The biggest thing I had to learn about it was that only about a third to a half of the quill is really suitable...

    Thanks everyone. I found that the wood was delaminating on the butt section. At that point I gave the rod to someone I know enjoys working on them. I don't and would probably keep putting it off...

    One of my favorite variatons on the basic bread recipe is to cover the top of the loaf with shredded cheese before baking. Home made cheese bread doesn't last long.
