Cliffhanger?
Here's some photos.
I can't test the threads on the pinion for lack of a nut.
The bearing spins okay.
Both will be going into the lacquer thinner bath tonight.

Looking good. These reels are great candidates to be stripped down and polished. After doing the varied surface of an 8500SS this is probably a walk in the park. Citristrip works like a charm on whatever paint penn was using to remove all the black with minimal elbow grease.

Hello Fred
I received the parts this afternoon. Thank You so much for your continued generosity. I very much appreciate you and how you bless so many of us.
I want to repaint the large flange. What paint do recommend and what surface prep is needed if any?

Now that you're sorted out I can hijack the thread again.

So is the line roller fixed on these, or is mine just frozen?

You can use an automotive gloss enamel spray can from the auto parts store.

Just make sure the parts to be painted are cleaned of any grease or crud.  Then rough up the surface a bit —- with a fine emory paper in the 320 grit range for adhesion and also to get off any flaky paint or rough edges.

Spray a LIGHT initial coat —- let it dry overnight if you are not using an oven.

Do a light sanding again —- then spray the last coat and let it dry overnight.

Blow any dust off in between painting.

Rough it up and give it the last coat.

Won't be perfect —- but it will turn out much better than you might realize.

I do powder-coating on these —- but that requires a lot of additional equipment.  Powder Gun, exhaust fan coating cabinet, compressor, blast cabinet, oven, and more.  Plus a full dedicated set-up and working area.

Thank You for the advice Fred. Are you contemplating powder coating some of the DQ 110-550 with color now that you have all the new paint equipment?
I have a reel or two that I would like to send you for new colors.
