I only now came across this tread. That is absolutely superb workmanship. I was blown away by the whole process. Well done Sir:cool:

I have Michael Hackney's book Fly Reel Primer (as new) happy to swap if anyone is interested?

principles of reel making - starting point and how to make a simple reel.

I'll never use it.

Swap for dvd Scott Mack or something like that?

I wonder if yours was the one I picked up at auction and binned last week?

It was nicely turned wood, but crude aluminium foot without ratchet.

Interesting but without value as my tackle must now earn its keep. all the vintage gear is gone alas, all gone, bar that which is better than today's offerings, better than today's.
