My bow has what appears to be a nickel silver winding, with plastic tape over the winding. The tape is starting to come off (at least a bit is beginning to curl up). When it gets worse, should I simply replace it with standing packing tape (like you ship a package with), or leave the tape off. If I take it off, and leave it that way, I'm concerned the sweat from my hand might cause corrosion, and/or the winding may start to come unwound.
Yeah - not quite the same sort of thing - but years ago I was donated a "split-cane" fishing rod from an uncle of mine ( the sort of well known in fishing circles "Willie Gunn", known for his salmon fly / flies designs ) - https://www.independent.co.uk/news/obituaries/obituary-willie-gunn-1341948.html
OK - long story short - I must have been about 12 years old or so, and he gave me this old rod, and it needed some attention, the bindings around the split-canes were rotten with the danger of imminent breaking of the cane if used strenuously on a BIG fish ! ( ROFL, I only ever caught tiddlers ! )
I removed, and re-did the bindings every few inches up the rods and protected them with a carefully applied several coats of polyurethane varnish. I no longer go fishing, but still have the rod.....
I know this has NOTHING to do with the topic, it just brought it to mind.... LOL
Nail varnish sounds just fine !
I seriously recommend not copying my mistakes. D'oh -
Please make your own, different mistakes, and help us all learn :-)
