The Delrin end caps were pressure fit / pressed in before the ends were shaped. He drilled 3/4" holes in Aluminum and left Delrin 2 thousands oversized and pressed them in.    John Taylor    PS I wish I had a piece of the Red stuff Sal used on one of his knobs.

That's some very nice work that gentlemen does John and I can really appreciate that. The knurling is perfect!

If Sal doesn't have any, I may have some short pieces of acrylic, probably and inch long, possibly and inch and a half.  Not sure as to colors.

 I know I have 2 pcs of fire tiger, black and gold. What are you looking for? I keep all short ends as they always get used for one thing or another. I do a lot of inlays.

By the way, its the icing on the cake for that beautiful reel. I'm located in Wallingford.

Have a great evening,  ..  Lou

Fits that 20/0 like it was born there.  And that little socket is truly a special tool.

Hi Lou
I might be interested in some of you Acrylic pieces but not sure if 1.5" is quite long enough. How big is the rod ? I would need 1" minimum. Let me know. Can you send me a few pics ?   I live by Sturbridge, Mass.  Thanks Lou !!   John

John, the fire tiger is the top pic. I have 2 pieces 1.130 dia and 1.180 dia about 1 3/4 long.

The second pic is the red. I have 2 pcs 1.030 dia and 1.050 dia about 2 1/8 long.

The colors may vary a bit but if these work for you, they're yours N/C.

Let me know and have a great evening,  ..  Lou
