Reel boxes

Post by Nobby » Thu Aug 24, 2017 9:24 am

Not really traditional, but I wanted a box for my reels that looked the part, for carriage or display...and I wanted some new ideas for my table at Romsey for that matter too.

Once the oil bottles I have chosen arrive I'll find a way of fixing them in place so they don't rattle around and I'm still working on obtaining a light, fully synthetic oil to put in them too...several options at the moment. The orange 'thing' is a bit of silicon tubing and a darning needle...great for whipping the line quickly up the rod guides when your hand is shaking with excitement on the 16th June....


The foam inserts are closed cell so dust free, heat insulated and can be used in different ways to suit different reels, so far I have the Rapidex, Trudex and Speedia reel formats worked out.

They really look the part.

The traditional labels finish them off perfectly.

Not my best idea after all fellers, I ended up selling them off well below cost, just to get rid of them... :-(
