Some reel cleaning & servicing shots . . . . . . .

Just a few shots here to illustrate the average depth to which a common reel I service is stripped down to.

Here in the shots is a couple of 5010 shimano baitrunners being stripped down for a pre-river season service, can't wait myself now, 3 months is a long time ! Roll on the new season, and let's hope i have as good a season this year as last ;)

Start: basics off - handle, body screws etc.....

Rotor head and main side plate off. . . . .  baitrunner mechanism out and shaft out, worm drive disconnected. 

 Main reel body, level wind 'pawl' out and checked for wear, worm shaft also checked with magnifying glass, to be sure ;) 

 Main body ready to be re-assembled and re-greased. . . . . . .  rear drag also cleaned and checked.

Re-assembled and ready . . . . . . . . . . . . 

I usually take payment in cash but I will also take PayPal, I would just need to send an invoice to your Paypal email account, to be paid prior to collection.
