What? Me worry?


« on: May 05, 2021, 01:33:33 AM »

Got a Penn LB 68 and found a snapped-off screw on onea the frame posts. About 2/3 was stuck in the post and someone glued the other top section into the side-plate to make it look good(blue stuff on the screw head in the picture). An eBay seller trick?

Darn!, get a new post? Nothin to lose here, so try a no-“easy-out” way, and see... started with a 5/64” drill, got alla way through the screw shaft, then finished with a 3/32”. Musta damaged the threads, right?, ...NO! Cleaned out great. The spare screw went in easy and tight. Used a punch to knock-out the glued-in screw head from the plate. Had to hit it kinda hard. Bakelite is some tuff plastic——no damage.

Leave the gun.  Take the cannolis.

 Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and he will sit in a boat all day drinking beer.

   Sometimes what looks like an easy fix turns into a major event...while the impossible job becomes a cinch...all in a day's reel maintenance! Grin Watcha gonna do with that big ol' 68?

I love LB's and wanted a line-winder reel--- put-on/take-off line for temp. storage(spool cleaning) and use as an "under pressure"braid winder-on'ner. The 68 has the slow gears (2.5:1)---bad, but is easy to service/modify and has great line capacity. Also this perticular 68 had the 24-56 penn power handle(me like!) with a cool 113H size butterscotch knob.

Be interesting to see if I can duplicate that fix. Went slow, used oil and moved the drill back and forth abuncha times. Maybe just lucky?

   I can tell you from experience it works great for that...I use one too G! Just don't do like poor Joe and crank the drag down too tight. Sorry Joe!
   At first those 2.5:1 gears sound so slow...but remember...that's a tall spool on that 68. It takes up more inches per turn than you'd think. Cool
