I have 8 349 AR dogs, $4.00 ea.  This will work for both the single and double lever reels.

When I gave you that 349, it was supposed to be an excuse to make more parts.  Tongue

I'm customizing a couple of 349 for a member here and wanted to mention that if you go with the 10 tooth ratchet, Lee's or stock dogs will not work on those. Not an issue if you use the custom ss 8 tooth sleeve of course.
Here is a pic of  the stock sleeve and dog

and a pic of a stock dog on the 10 tooth ratchet. As you could see it doesn't engage as it should

Since he is a good customer and good friend, I decided to make him some Titanium dogs, but these will be the first and last that I will do Smiley

He was lucky enough to get a hold of 2 of these 349 full Accurate kits, so I had to make 2 Titanium dogs.

Here is something interesting about these Accurate plates, they've been machined so the tail rests on the notched shoulder giving the dog additional supports... very clever of Accurate.

These reels are waiting on Lou's custom knobs and arms, there is no rush.

I'm also waiting on Adam's (Motive Fabrication) inserts.
These are already very capable reels, they will be even better when done.

Besides some marks here and there, these are some of the best reels  I have run into.
You're a lucky man Dollar Bill, I hope you get lots of enjoyment out of them.

Lee, still send those dogs I ordered, I like to have them here in case I need them, thanks!

I can see the dogs need to be a little longer in length. About 1/16" should be enough.

its not just the 1/16" in length, if you take a closer look  my dog is wider at the tip and at a different angle.
The second pic is showing it better than it  is.
It wasn't easy working with Titanium using hand tools and was surprised to see my dogs fit better than stock.

The titanium I use is pretty hard.  Ti-6al-4v is typically around 35 Rockwell C in hardness, which puts it right up there with most hardened steels, but not quite to the hardness of spring steel and knife steel.  I only use Nicholson files, and they do well.  I have notices that an older file that still cuts stainless fine will struggle with titanium.  Same goes for taps.  When they start getting harder to use in titanium, I put them to the side for use in stainless. 

Sharp, high quality files are a must for shaping, and for drilling and cutting sharp HSS tooling and oil work well with a slow speed and heavy pressure.  With the proper tooling, titanium is only slightly harder to work with than stainless.  Its tapping holes where it really gets tricky. 

Nice job on the dog though, it looks great. 

Btw, your insert drag kits are going in the mail tomorrow morning along with the stars.
