The reel ready for anodising

The O-ring bearing and the reliable locknut system.


Hi, I'm studying pre...

Hi, I'm studying precision machining at Renton Technical College in Washington State. Me and a fellow student are planning on machining a pair of light weight fly reels as a side project over the next 2 quarters in school. Im just starting to research schematics, trying to find blueprints for a reel, or where to begin when it comes to drawing up my own blueprints if neccesary. Any advice on getting started would be greatly appreciated. We have access to cnc lathes and milling machines, and are hoping to be done with the pair before our graduation in august.
