That kind of hard to do with drag stars though. No way to mount it in the lathe chuck. I was planing to have them laser cut. So a tap would be better. I'm only making a few so it hard to justify. Maybe I will have to send the gear sleeve back to Alan. They should have made them course thread. I can find the star online for that thread type. Fine thread no such animal.

Add a bolt hole pattern on the star. You will be able to fixture the star that way.

I will settle for a brass gear sleeve. And a stock star. It will be a whole lot cheaper. Alan forgot to say the sleeve was useless until after the fact. But he will take it back no problem. He has 5 left handed that are paper weights until stars are made. I can make stainless sleeves cheaper with the coarse thread cheaper than making the stars.

At this point alan your right. It's like having a lock without the key.

Hold on Alan I can have a tap made for $105.00 per tap. That isn't to bad that as good as it gets. I thought it would be hard to get but I can order it in Modesto. It's made in Illinois one day turn arround and shipped.

You probably already know, but as a reminder...

It needs to be a buttress thread.

actually, these are not.  the 6/0 gear sleeve is a buttress  thread for sure, but not these.  i just took a look and they are plain sawtooth. 

and mike, do you really want to spend a hundred dollars just for this?  i'm not sure there is much of a market for a left handed jigmaster gear sleeve and star set.   Undecided

Alan I have a lot of tooling I don't use now but when I need it I have it. It's my pre retirement collection. You never know. No one builds left handed reels. I might be profitable to explore it and sell a few reels before the other parts run out.

Mike,
        I know this is an old thread, but did you still have that information
on who will make the left handed tap? $105.00 is worth it to me. I also have
tools from being a mechanic that I will only use two or three times in my
life but as you said "when I need it I have it" I sent a request for a custom tap
to a tooling company but they are very slow in following up on it. They acknowledged
my request but that's it.
Hope to hear back from you.

If you get the tap I will send you some stars to tap to help recover the cost of tooling.
