Hello all!

Recently exchanged msgs with Alan, happy to hear he's feeling a lot better now! He thought I should say hi from my workshop  Cheesy

Pleased to introduce Reelyology Reel Workshop from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia! My baby was born on May 1st 2015 so it's been on for about 2 years plus. As a
reel serviceman I grew up 'here' from this forum, reading and experience gathering. Took me a few years then the workshop happens as a part time hobby, after the unfortunate turn in the oil and gas sector, I'm now working full time in my workshop. At current I do 30-50 reels a month. Recently we've just hit reel #500 serviced by the workshop.

I'm currently a one man army running everything, the workshop services all types of reels, carbontex upgrades/replacement, bearings, parts...just the usual and a bit more  Cheesy

Enjoy the photos from my workshop, it'd be great if you could also like my Facebook Page - Reelyology Reel Workshop




The humble beginning of my workshop in my house, circa 2014-2015



Then it move to a room upstairs



Next, last year my wife and I rented another house nearby for our businesses



This is my current reel service room



Then my 'clean' work table in another room



Drill and Dremel bench for stripped screws, polishing, etc

Thanks so much to all for your kind words! Truth is I learned a lot from many of you here, that's why I said I 'grew up' in this forum  Cheesy

The CNC machine is the answer for me to make Carbontex washers, I had no background in machining but learned bits and pieces as I had to retire making them washers by hand. For the Malaysian market we see a wide variety of reels including generic rebranded Chinese and Taiwanese reels and ready kits are just not enough to cope with it, there's not a kit for everything. So I decided there and then that it should custom cut for every reel. Just got the machine last year really, it's got the 4th axis and all but really, 98% of it's time is spent making carbontex washers  Grin Grin

I remember in one of Alan's post about bearings, he said something like I'm not saying you have to have a healthy inventory of bearings...

I smile and think about that from time to time, now I do need a healthy inventory of bearings
