Quote from: Bill B on May 20, 2022, 12:53:15 AMBecause I'm a cheapskate I have been making my own by grinding down a large finish nail and heat treating it myself.  I heat treat by using a torch heating it red hot and quenching in oil.  When they bend or break I just make another.  Bill

I support the handle on a block of wood, with a hole drilled through for the pin to punch through.

That one's a roll pin. They're quite a bit easier to remove than the older style solid pins. Roll pins generally don't cause an issue.
Love those open face spinning reels! (Especially ABU & ABU/Zebco Cardinals)

Ah! Thanks, Tom. I hadn't read the complete thread. I did do a 270 a little while back, but most of mine are N's.
