Keep extra dog springs, and you can make the flat ones for black side senators out of razor blades, thats why the spring in my 9/0 is. Because...its a bird, its a plane, its a flying dog spring lol

Here is an easy way to remove a sleeve pin. No need to hold the punch on the pin while hitting it with a hammer, just to have it slip at times and scratch the sleeve. A little pressure is usually all that is needed, place the bridge on a towel, apply a little pressure and it will come right out.
 



The 1/16 punch is from $1 to $4, depending on brand, the Nicholson type C handle is $.99 both at any home centers.
No gluing needed, just press it in and you're set.
Thanks again for the punch Harry Wink.

Nice info! The sleeve pin on my 12/0 was really stiff. I had to help the punch with a hammer. I didn't like doing that but at least I didn't scratch up the sleeve too bad.......


You could also try resting the sleeve on a piece of PVC will help with removing the pin with no damage

Razor blades, I like that. How springy is it compared to the origanal? What blades do you use?

Bryan might have some custom stainless steel dog springs...... Bryan, if you do, I need some more.

Here's a neat trick for service/repair without schematics:

as you take the reel apart, use empty egg-crates to put parts in consecutive compartments (you can even number them w/ a marker); take digital photos along the way; and reassemble in reverse order. If you choose correct critical moments & angles for the photos, it works better than any schematic. Best of all -- NO "EXTRA" PARTS left over!!!  you get to an egg-hole -- you MUST figure out where the part(s) go(es), before you proceed!!!

NOTE: cardboard egg-crates are best -- some lubes/solvents dissolve Styrofoam
