    Thought I might post a few pics.

    I decided to do a machinist course to reduce the learning curve when I make a reel from scratch. Here are a few pictures of what I’ve been working on at home and at the college where I work.

    Making a tap wrench

    I wanted to make some screws for the old JW Young reel feet so I needed to be able to cut the thread and slit the top of the screw. I bought a slitting saw and made the arbour to fit a 5/8 collet

    Can’t wait to see the reel after honing your skills on these Boris.

    How is the reel build going Boris, or has Covid halted all progress?
