The construction of the new rod is in it´s critical phase. Now it must be planed into the final cone form. Before planing the rod must by dry, and for this reason must be dried in a “rod oven” on 190 degrees celsius for 20 minutes. With drying it becomes stronger and more resistant in time.

Once it is dry, it should be planed into the final form as soon as possible and glue together, so that doesn´t accumulate humidity.

For this operation we need a special stencil on wich we can regulate the depth of the strip. This operation is very time-consuming and requires patience and a very sharp planer. After this phase is done we can glue the strips together into the final hexagonal shape.  But that will be explained in the next post…
