Quote from: Alto Mare on July 21, 2013, 08:42:05 PMDawn asked me to check these gears out, these will fit the Newell, the Jigmaster 505 and Jigmaster 500/501, that I'm showing here.The Jigmaster 500 will need a little customizing to make them work.While I was at it, I also decided to test Bryan's 5+1 drag kit.At holding I got 24lb, there was a little more, but I didn't want to push it all the wayI pulled the line out and run, as Bryan suggested, the scale registered about the same and the line peeled off smoothlyI also did some retrieving tests by just turning the handle while pulling a wagon with some weight.With the star almost all the way tight, the scale registered 15lb. Ones it got rolling, the drag was nice and smooth.If any of you would like to install these gears in the Jigmaster 500, you'll need to use the stock tension spring from Penn.If you would like to use the Belleville instead, you'll need to shave the plate just a little, I used a Belleville similar to the one that came with Bryan's kit, mine is a little smaller in diameter. You will also need to drill the bottom of the pinion so it will fit over the right side bushing, don't worry about doing so, most of the stress on the pinions is at the notched area. Dawn could actually ask the machinist to enlarge the bottom of the pinion, other reels mentioned won't be affected by it.The Newell gear has a built in washer at the bottom, if you're using these in a Jigmaster, you will need a shorter spacer sleeve Here is a shot of the drilled pinionDawn, to me the gears did great and everything looked good afterwards.Bryan, your washers did really good, I like them. The washer under the main gear was undamaged, maybe related to that built in washer under the gear I hope this is of some help.Sal

Upgrading the handle and handle arm is another option, I prefer the smaller out of production "hotdog" handle for 112H/500 size reels. A few hex and octagon gear inserts are still available but I'm not sure if I will make another run for the 112H/500 gear.
