Would that non metal surface need greasing anyway?

It will help keeping moisture from being absorbed into the graphite plate to help keep it from swelling.      Rudy

Greasing that surface just makes cleanup that much easier next time when the dirt comes out with the old grease. Without the grease, the minerals can stick to the bakelite pretty well.

Being that we know how to and regularly maintain our reels it really isn't necessary to do.  I only do it to my most used reels/wireline reels.
Good to know though,

Hopefully, not the same principle, to hold grease.  Grin

You see the jeweling fairly often if you know where to look for it; I have noticed it inside of the gear boxes / lockers on fire trucks (but like a 4 inch swirl, not 1/4"). I asked a friend of mine and he said it is commonly used just so scratches don't show up so easily. Polished metals are easily scratched, aluminum being a common culprit. Jeweling covers a lot of scratches fast as well.

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.

Hi Mike did you ever get the opportunity to ask the people at Penn about the jeweling of the sideplates ? Maybe when this occurred ??
Thanks in advance.
