Quote from: jurelometer on May 09, 2022, 03:03:52 AMBeen awhile, but I am pretty sure that the gear sleeve thread size is 13/32, so somewhere around .402-.405 inch diameter for the gear sleeve diameter...

Quote from: Sledge on May 10, 2022, 02:07:30 PMGood points on the tight clearances! The sleeve doesn't rub as installed, but it may very well under load. I'll try to get it assembled today and do a function check on the drags, etc. Worst case, I'll just make another one in a couple weeks.Unfortunately, I'll probably never get to test the limits of this reel, as I live about smack in the middle of the U.S. Bought it because the machine work is is top notch, and I like tinkering with mechanical things.
