its a nice little reel. Alan has a new one that I shaved the cork material and glued a carbontex washer and it's better than new.

Hi Bryan,

What thickness of carbontex did you use to make the washer? I fish with this reel regularly and love it save for the particle board drag...

Thanks,
Ijlal

I sanded the drag washer by 1 mm then glued on an 1 mm carbontex washer then formed to to confirm the the original washer.

If I had the reel I would show you. Maybe Warren has it or Jerry Downie has it.

Thank you Bryan.

Let's say I have a 1 mm thick carbontex sheet, would it be okay to cut a washer and glue it on the existing stock washer after sanding it down by 1 mm, or should I remove the particle board washer and glue the carbontex one to the bakelite plate....

I just sanded that particle board down by 1 mm then glued the washer to it.  It should be fine.  I just received the Jerry's reel back from Warren and will post a picture of it this weekend.

I took a piece of glass, taped 1000 grit sand paper and sanded away trying to keep even pressure on the drag plate.  I probably could have done it faster is I used a courser grit sandpaper, but it was pretty smooth and made a good, clean surface to glue the carbonate washer flat.

What "glue" did you use"? Is there a need for a high heat epoxy? Are they readily available  at the Big Vox stores or maybe an automotive parts supply?
This sounds simple enough, but I want mess it up with a questionable product.
