Wrapping

Has anyone tried wrapping over the thread check?

If you are referring to the one in front of the grip, then yes. I do that often. Check out the photo gallery for examples.

In the photo section, I don't see the ability to see all photos for a specific person. A search using your last name returns nothing.

I can't help you with your search, but I've posted more photos lately than about anybody so I'd suggest you just surf the categories. BTW they're called hozzels.

Wrong guy I was the one who said thread check, I was told by everyone that they are called thread checks. Let's not get into a pissing contest. Thank you for your reply that answered my question.

Joe, there was no pissing contest involved and I knew it was a different person. A check is a smaller item that would not be a candidate for wrapping, so I was pretty sure that hozzel was what you meant. I also use paste epoxy over the hozzel to form what is termed a ramp in some builds.

William is correct, Hossle is the name of the larger/bigger form of the check in front of the fore grip which can be covered with thread and or epoxy to form the ramp he is referring too which is on most Salt-Water gear.

OR in lieu of a Hozzle or winding check make a tapered ramp using ROD BOND which can be colored and left as is or used as a base to wrap thread up.

I have used Rod Bond as well as a 30 minute epoxy. You can form it with your fingers so that it is perfectly smooth and is minus any lumps if you just dip your fingers in a little isopropyl alcohol. Then it doesn't stick to you and your design comes out nice and clean. If you are going to wrap thread over it, lightly file it like you would a guide foot and wind your threads from the low end up the ramp. Good luck!
