I saw John (54bullseys) had a buddy make him a socket wrench for penn handle nuts. Is that a thing?  It sure would be a handy item. Anybody sell those?  Making one is completely out of my wheel house. Thanks Sheridan

I need 2 of them. 1 for each size Penn Handle Nut. I'm sure that I know people that would also want them.

I just use the wrench that comes with the reel or my AT wrench.  But being a tool ho as well as a tackle ho means I should get one if they become available!

I would have laughed if it was anyone but you.  Does look convenient and quicker than rummaging through a tray of nut drivers and sockets for something simple.

Sort of reminds me of the pinclock in my shop.

I have thought about a socket for the cranknuts...

But for me, the problem is that the socket hides the nut.

Generally, after a service, these start easily enough with just my fingers — the threads are soft chrome over brass and short anyway — and I can use the wrench to get the groove lined up for the keeper screw first time.

For removing the nuts, a socket may be better.

But I always go back to Gomer Pyle tightening my wheel lugs with an impact gun.

Not that big of a deal for me, but I still like the idea of a socket for removing the nuts.  As long as no damage occurs to the nut or the handle blade.

Best,

Fred

Before first light — with nothing less than wonder, and humility — I scan the cool, dark waters for the coming horizon — and the hope of what that deep unknowing might hold for me today...

——————————————————

Nothing happened. The fish just moved away slowly and the old man could not raise him an inch. His line was strong and made for heavy fish and he held it against his back until it was so taut that beads of water were jumping from it. Then it began to make a slow hissing sound in the water and he still held it, bracing himself against the thwart and leaning back against the pull. The boat began to move slowly off toward the north-west.

Santiago knew what he was in for, his lifelong experience had prepared him...

I was talking to Alan about asking Tom to machine a bunch of flip sockets (one side is smaller nut, the other side is larger), but after further discussion, it would be cost prohibitive and would not make much sense.
