Vintage Low Frame Stripping Guides – PRODUCTION ON PAUSE



Out of stock

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



ACW’s Vintage Low Frame Stripping Guide.  The low frame features “pinched” wings like the cradle frame, but the wing height is minimal relative the feet of the frame, so there is very little space between the guide ring and the rod. These are beautiful guides, yet are rarely used except for restoration work. If you’re making a new rod, yet you want the aesthetics to really call out, “age, history, & wisdom,” then use a low frame guide and wind on lots of intermediate wraps. Approximately 1.590” long and 0.530” tall from the bottom of the feet to the top of the ring.

Pre-WWII Rings; modern bezels, modern frames; crafted in-house.

Vintage, Pre-WWII Red Rings 10mm – a mix of agate and agatine, no material choice.
