I can supply the gear and materials. I have original washers as a template. We have to decide on thickness and the type of materials. Also should we make the fiber washers at the same time?

I took apart a reel to measure the thickness. The metal washers are .048 which is18 gage. The carbon washers are .040 thick. A total of 5 washers each.

Has anyone heard from Keith (handi2) lately? I know he was not feeling well and I've tried reaching out to him through PM, but have not gotten any response.

 I chatted with Keith about 2 1/2 weeks ago. He did mention he was moving to his new house in a month, so I'm guessing he's busy packing stuff for the move

I do think I have one of Dawnís kits. Yep I sure do. Iíll get in the mail tomorrow. I have your address. The kit has everything. The metal washers and the Carbontex washers.

Keith, here is the finished product, and thanks for your support in getting this done.

Gabe did well in a tough year at school, and he just helped me rebuild this with the drag kit you supplied (and some additional goodies from Cortez Customs).
