Naw, I just cleaned it up for the owner, who may never use it again. It's fun to play around with stuff like that, especially if there's no financial stake in making it work right or it's not the go-to reel for the owner.

I did 2 TLD 25's in 2 hours. I know that only because I focused on documenting the time. These were straight forward, had no issues, except for a lack of grease. I feel like I take more time because I address everything in the reel. I take reels apart literally into each and every single piece possible. This has to be why I probably take so long. I figure this probably isn't needed and I feel though as it should. Then in a lot of cases, I have internal parts with green corrosion, and then that requires me to grab my Dremel to clean the surfaces of these parts. Then, another factor for me is old old hard/or dark gunky grease. I have to do a good clean to remove it and that takes time. CRC 6-56 Marine lubricant does an amazing job at cleaning so I've stuck to it. I also clean out bearings that have removable shields, if not I fill them with the grease gun. All in all I feel I take long.

One big thing for me which I think affects my time, is my work space. I work in a small desk and its inside my home. I do not have a garage. Soon I will have a large 10x20 shed and it will be set up as storage but I will also be setting up a comfortable workbench.

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

Every reel is different for me, Bait caster is what I work on the most as guys from my parts tend to be more of the Bass and Striper guys, Conventional reels are almost as simple just bigger parts so easier to manage. For some reason Spinning reels tend to give me more work as the drag is separated from the main reels and some of the gears tend to be offset. Like the Shimano Thunnus 4000, which took a few tries before it was perfectly align to work. Avg about 40 to 50 mins as I tend to double check to ensure I cleaned everything properly the first time.
