Wow thanks Mike.
Would it make sense that this was maybe done on some of the older reels in the 50's ??
It would be interesting to me if you possibly new when this was done and if Penn did it themselves as I certainly didn't  Wink

It is an old machinist trick. I have seen on early Pflueger big game reels like the Atlapac. I always am surprised when I see on a Penn reel. Don't really know if they did it by hand or if it was molded in. I will ask. The people at Penn today sometimes surprise with their knowledge of old techniques. Can't hurt to ask.

Jeweling can be done with several different tools. They even make tools specifically for the task. Pencils are traditional, but you go through a bunch of them.

For jeweling I use these in a Dremel:

I wouldn't even bother using pencils...


Chris, thanks for showing, those should work out nicely.
Were you the first bringing the jeweling to us?...thanks for the tip might give those a try!

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

Thanks Mike.
I have seen them mostly on the old 49A Penn reels from the 1950's.
I appreciate your feedback and hopefully some more from the Penn folks.

Here is the sideplate of a Penn Senator 12/0 that recently had a clean up. Jeweling also visible.
Any news from the folks at Penn Mike ?

Penn is in the QT mode. My world is breaking down. Do not know who will ultimately be at Penn and my publisher is basically underground. So at this time I have no answers. Maybe next year the dust will settle and we will have new people in the mix.

I've got many reels with this "jeweling".  I just always though it came out of the mold a little rough so they used a polishing tool of some kind that created those swirls.
I does look cool when you crack one open and see it's holographic inside wall.  I don't believe I've ever seen it on a head plate but then again, I may have but can't remember one at the moment.
This would negate what I said about the rough texture after the mold so it needing polishing because I would think the head plate would need more smoothing with all the nooks and crannies. Huh?
Just another mystery to a Penn reel,

Dom you can see my pictures on the previous page showing the Penn 49A headplate with jeweling. As Mike said it holds the oil / grease better than a flat surface.

Thanks Mike we hope you have better luck with the Penn people soon  Grin

Interesting... surprised they would put all that work in to hold geese (...or grease, lol) or oil. Guess thatís why they stopped it.
Thanks AC,

It makes sense that grease would stay put on that roughened surface, but did they ever use enough grease in the factory to cover all that real estate? The usual complaint is that manufacturers don't pack enough grease into their product at production time.....
