Product Description


Hi Folks, we are no longer producing this line – for the time being. Once the shop is moved and set up again, I expect to resume production on these and many other of our Golden Witch and Arcane Component Works parts. After an item is listed as ‘Production On Pause,’ please don’t request that we make an exception for you; the tools to make each paused item are already boxed up and ready to move in a shipping container. Thanks for your understanding and patience as we shift from a full-time operation to a semi-retired part-time operation. I expect our sabbatical will last the entirety of 2023, with operations firing up again in early 2024. – Russ


Franken-Stone™ Guide Series – Set In Hydro-Welded™ Frames!


10mm OD Wide Porcelain With Heavy Nickel Silver Bezel In A Hydro-Welded™ Frame


These guides feature wide vintage rings already wrapped in heavy, vintage nickel silver bezels and each is set into one of our shop-made Hydro-Welded™ Frames. Add one of these guides to your rodmaking stash while you can because we have less than a hundred of these pre-bezelled vintage rings.

Each one of these is going to vary slightly, but figure the guide ring is about 10mm OD x 4.5mm ID x 5mm Wide.  The guide stands about 0.625″ tall and is about 1.165″ long, foot tip to foot tip.

On 1/4/21, we have ten of these guides made and available for immediate shipment – if you want them bright; if you opt to have them blued, they’ll go into the line-up for custom products and we’ll have them oxidized, clear coated, and shipped in a few weeks. 

Trout?  Yes!  Bass?  Yes!  Panfish? Sure, why not?



This guide (in the foreground) features a ‘white’ nickel silver bezel and the guide in the background, a 10mm Oyster Special, features a highly polished brass bezel.  Perhaps we should have called these our Silver Oyster Specials.  S.O.S.  Save One For Yourself!  NOTE: If you use and enjoy the regular Oyster Specials, these are NOT the same rings in different bezels; while similar, these have a smaller bore by about one millimeter.  Look carefully at the photo and you’ll see the difference.
