I'd like a small metal lathe too Bill.  Have you looked into them yet?  Any suggestions?

Ready to fish....cut the #6-32 SS screws to 9/16" thread length, milled the screw head down to .200 using a drill press and file.   Mounting the new hood to the rod is a little cumbersome, but if you are not constantly changing reels this will not be a problem.  The new clamp is tight and the locking nuts are really not necessary but Im nt ready to cut them off just yet.  I realize this whole thing could be scrapped if I was using an aftermarket reel clamp such as a "Cork Puppy" but I had an idea and wanted to see if this would work.  Here it is mounted on a Kencor Tenlew rod and Penn Squidder 140.  Bill

You have basically made a reel clamp for clampless reels. I am thinking they will work great for Deck Hand special rods. Really clean work

In my opinion, that is much better than the original, very creative Bill.
Great job!

I was about to type same thing....what a nice move. Sorry Bill, you are now in the custom parts business. I'm going to start my deckhand build this weekend, and I'd like my set in Cortez Ice Blue  Grin Grin Grin Grin

Ron, glad to have you back up in fresh air!

Bill, your work on this inspired me to look into things that might work to fix a split seat on a generic 9' surf rod that I've got/love/haven't used for years because of said split seat.

I found this piece on amazon: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0063KX9AY/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

that, while not nearly as graceful as what you've done, locks down a reel something fierce.

Thanks for the inspiration!

Ron

edit: I think I got the last one. I only paid $6.70 for it. I suspect the current $28 price has to do with them being out of stock.

I noticed they've got a ton of different sizes/ materials (SS, aluminum, nylon) of the same kind of product. Fortunately, most of them are in the $8-15 range.

Volatile Amazon pricing cracks me up: it's up to $60 today!
