    im having trouble locating 6.5mm (1/4″) polished Carbon Fiber rods for sale. I’ve read about them a few times, but I can’t find them.  Any help would be appreciated.

    The only replacement guide rods can be purchased from WE: (they offer two styles and several lengths).

    Mcmaster Carr sells carbon fiber rods which you could thread yourself if you get a 1/4″-28 die and die handle.
    Carbon fiber rods are quite expensive at $50 plus shipping for a 48″ length.

    They also sell rods in Garolite, which I believe is the equivalent of G10 and has some lubricity to it.  It sells for $16 per 48″ rod.

    I made my rods from precision stainless rods and I have two sets: one at about 11″ and another at 18″ for when I double-stack my low angle adapters to sharpen my Japanese knives to 8 dps.   You only need three or move turns of the thread.  A few more if you want to use a jam nut.

     

    On second thought, I don’t know how stiff Garolite would be.
