I was putting a 12LT back together and started thinking....(uh oh)...
Just curious, but do you have any idea as to the type of adhesive that is used to glue the drag washers to
to spools? Specifically, smaller Avets and Saltist lever drag reels, and, Penn glues the ht-100/DuraDrag washers to the aluminum drag plates on Internationals, right?
I ask this because most adhesives are affected thermally and I'm pretty sure that a fresh tuna pulling 30# of drag creates a significant amount of friction heat on the drag washer. Whatever it is, it must be some pretty good stuff? I like good stuff.
So, any idea?
this may help.just got an email from abu and the glue they use is called 555.swedish i think.they use it to glue the cork washers to their spools.the solvent they recommend is aceton. gd luck.
