cleaning reels

Question

Hello, noticed my spinning reels are pretty dirty. Is there a type of spray you like to use, or another way you clean your reel? Any comments appreciated.

dont know if spraying reel magic into the casing would help clean it or not. I think you might have to do it all the old fashioned way, take them apart wash them with luke warm water and a tooth brush. then dry them, relube them, and put them back together. Make sure you have the schematics with you unless you are very familiar with them, or you will end up with extra parts.

I agree with the WD-40 and toothbrush. This is how I do it every 2 years. When I take the reel apart I ley the pieces on a towel in the order they came out. This will help when it comes time to put it back together.

i clean all of my reels with rubbing alcohol and Q-tips.( i don't like sprays) then all internal gears get a light coating of lithium(?) grease. the handles,rollers, and level winds get a drop or two of reels ease oil. spinning reels aren't to bad, but be sure to have the diagrams for the bait casters!! WD-40 is great, but be careful of other sprays. some can take the paint off!( trust me!!!!!) it does same you money! ( between the kids' reels and mine. i have 11 to clean) a guy here charges $15 to clean reels. be patient and take your time! del

I use WD-40 or I just pour warm water into the gears and then re-oil. Works very well before ice fishing to make sure that your reel functions properly in the cold. I try to clean all my reels before every season but sometimes I don't get around to it.

Good Fishin, Matt.

First off, you disassemble one baitcaster, or spinning reel you have pretty much done them all('cept maybe and eon) second of all you might consider using an egg carton to put your parts in as you disassemble your reel, that way you can put the parts in order of disassembly, clean one or two, based on your experience with the guts of the reel, replace to the egg carton in the same order, and replace to the reel in backward order. Take note the up and down of parts *** you remove them, above all else PATIENCE. Once you have taken your reels apart a couple hundred times you get the hang of it. I have found the best lubricant for fishing reels is Remoil. Do not ever use reel magic inside spinning or baitcasting reels. It seems to gunk up inside and slow things down.
oh and a magnetic parts dish is really great for the jesus clips!

      I think property management is more about communication than real estate as it requires regular interaction with property owners, tenants and staff. To create a base of loyal customers and ensure future growth in a competitive market, I recommend ordering the development of a mobile application fromhttps://djangostars.com/industries/proptech-real-estate/. Because managing a large real estate company that has been on the market for over 20 years can be a headache if you don't have the right software to manage it.

      Buying and selling, renting residential areas include many long-term labor-intensive processes. It is easy to optimize, speed up these operations - it is enough to order the creation of a mobile application for real estate.

      This is the right decision, because such software will allow her to work less and more conveniently. Therefore, find its own developers. In your city, if it is large, you can find such a team, if not, then on the Internet

      don't know what roulette is? Hi. Roulette as I think is a very cool game. Roulette has been played since the nineteenth century and every self-respecting casino, including online casinos, be sure to have it in their assortment https://aolbroadband.in/ .Games for free, which the guys provide on this site, of course, include the most popular varieties of roulette: American, European and French. The online version of roulette is no different from the well-known one from land-based casinos: it features a green table with marked numbers and betting fields, as well as a wheel with numbered cells on which the ball rotates. On this site you can learn more and even play it

      In addition to to Feichao, you can also consider the DJI Mini SE. This is also an excellent piece. However, always try to read articles and thorough reviews before buying.

      Mini drones like Feichao Mini Drone Quadcopter M9 are good to take footage.

      My grandmother is a very old person, and she has had a real estate company for 20 years now, she has dedicated her whole life to it, so she does not understand much about technology and is looking to modernize her business, she is one of the few real estate companies that They don't have their own application, so I see myself in charge of finding a good software developer for real estate and that type of business. Do you know any professional or company that is dedicated to it?

      Don't forget about IP Lures just west of town about 2 miles on the south side of Co. 82.    I was out on Osakis last week for a couple hours. Picked up two walleyes, one about 13" and the other a fat 14-1/2". Also a couple northerns and a handful of perch.

      Of course, you shouldn’t even ask about this, because this is the responsibility of the executor of the order, that is, the employee who will create such an application. I think it will be stated in the contract of employment if there is one and then you don't have to ask for anything.
