The time i work on this reel is not that much, the time i have to wait until the paint and epoxy is dried up is more :-) i first worked out a plan to restore the reel after that you only have to follow that plan to come to a good result

Great work Evert!
I walked across an empty land
I knew the pathway like the back of my hand
I felt the earth beneath my feet
Sat by the river and it made me complete.

That is truly something different and very very special! Well done! Starts looking like a wonderful reel again.
I wonder if you now could model a complete reel :Chuckle:

I think that is possible :-) but in that case i prefer a lathe to make new parts and the good news is that i bought one that makes that possible :-)

Amazing work Martin, you certainly have lots of patience. :Hat: Looking forward to seeing this old reel back in action.
