Rod Dryer Clutch Upgrade for RDS & DCRDS

Mike Michaud (Torrington, CT, US)
Good clutch

This clutch works well the only thing I found was the rod at higher speeds bobbed a little more then I liked.

Rod drier clutch

I had a homemade, direct drive using rubber bands to hold the rod. Wow, what an improvement, super happy with the product!

Dryer clutch

This is a game changer! Makes applying finish much easier. Haven’t had a chance to use it a lot but so far so good.

Doesnt spin perfectly straight

It works but unfortunately it doesnt spin perfectly straight and makes it hard to get a perfectly even epoxy ramp on guides
