  Way ta go...enjoy your reel! Cool

Can't wait for some warmer weather.  I am putting it on a 6 foot fiberglass Browning walleye rod.

Well done!

My Daddy always said he never learned much when he did things right but he learned a lot when he made a mistake.  Cheesy  I've always remembered that comment when I screw up, problem is the mind is getting too old to remember, sometimes, what I learnt.  Grin

Good advice.  And thanks guys for making this a place where you can talk about goof ups without feeling bad about it.

Good job, Grekim!

Best,

Fred

And a vote of confidence from Fred is always good.

Forget about all the reasons why something may not work. You only need to find one good reason why it will.

It was pretty much dirt cheap, so if it turned out to be a heap of parts so be it.   I figured the worst thing to happen was I'd have wasted a little time (and there are some that would say it was a waste of time regardless of the outcome).  I certainly don't see it that way  Wink

It's never a waste of time getting a spinning reel working fine and back into circulation, and even the experience of working on it counts for something!  Wink
