How to do "Stacked" Threadwork on Fan Sticks?
Hello, I need help or instructions with how to create this "stacked" method of threadwork on fan sticks. I've done threadwork before but I've yet to figure out this method. I've seen examples where the threadwork looks like thick stacks of discs on top of each other. some other examples almost look like glass beads. Any tips on how to do this and recommendations on particular thread types?

That is one of the better keep secrets :) Years ago I bought a dozen extender sets from a guy in Flagstaff. Since then I've asked around and gotten vague answers.
What I have learned is: The process is a modification of the techniques used for thread wrapping on fishing rods. The thread is Gudebrod rod tying thread or equivalent. The layers are glued with either the urethane or cyanoacrylate glues and varnishes used for rod wrapping. And a rod wrapping jig with thread tensioner is a near necessity. (Tho' I have no idea how the jig is modified for this work.)
I have never plunked down the bucks for a video on rod tying to see if i can figure it out. Once I really thought about the adhesive and varnishes, I decided the process is cat hair incompatible. I'll stick to simple wraps with clear nail polish top coats, LOL.
