So...Here's a Pictorial, based on the following request;

I have failed several times replacing handle knobs. If you could ever make a visual tutorial showing the "knocking out", "resetting", and "peening", I and I am sure many others would be very appreciative!

You are a true craftsman. What do you do for a living?

One more question. Why is your Ricks Reels website not listed on the ORCA page that shows members websites of interest?

Uhhhhh...because it's not interesting? :lol: :wink:

Actually, I would have to request that my Web Link be added. Merv doesn't just arbitrarily grab our personal sites and post them without our permission. My choice has been to make my site available via the WWW button on my posts and let people choose.

Well, i deg to biffer on that point rick! We are in the process of updating everything and that,s one not done. We all need to turn in the urls and names of our sites to merv bortner (click on him in the administrator line at the bottom of each forum) and he will add you to the member (or non.member) websites page, as the case may be!

John...I edited my post to make sure that everyone understood that "not being listed" on the ORCA page, was/is "My choice". I was just being light-hearted on my original reply but neglected to realize that someone might accidentally take that comment the wrong way. Here-to-fore...the edit. MERV & JOHN...Thanks guys for the help and clarifications. Ya'll do Great things for us!

Your website is so much superior to mine that mine should not even qualify. you need to get yours on there so everyone can see it. It's great.

LOL...Maybe one of these days. If I can get up to Steve or Jim's level, I might be pursuaded to go public. In the meantime...I'm kinda shy...right Deke? :wink:

You are at the top of the heap right now. Do everybody a favor and do it. Although I don't know you personally I don't think shyness is one of your attributes. No offense intended.

LOL...I may very well be the "Top Heap" right now, but I can assure you that I'm nowhere near "the Top of the Heap".

And...no offense "ever" taken. Shoot my dog, and we have a different story. :wink:

Thanks Jon!

Great tutorial. Thanks for posting it. I see that as a skill that can really come in handy. Is it possible to repeen a knob that has loosened up at the handle end without replacing the pin? If not, where do you find pins?

Gaddy...Yep it's possible. You can try to re-set the existing peen (tighten it up), or remove the existing pin, shave the knob a little to expose more of the pin and then re-peen it. Beyond that it's a matter of scavenging pins/shafts off of other handles or reels.

Rick,

What do you do with something like a Penn torpedo knob where the knob end of the pin is not exposed?

Ouch...ya hit my sore spot. Sorry pal, with those I have no experience. Most of the ones I have done are on the older wood handle styles and the smaller bait casting styles. Mike C. or maybe Brian F. might be able to advise you on the Penn torpedo's.

I don't have any experience with working on the Penn torpedo knobs personally but do remember that guys would typically pull them off and swap them for the larger knobs. It's a matter of pulling them off and pressing on a new one as the stem on the crank is knurled. Penn used to sell the replacement knob/stem. Either when using those replacements or pulling one off from another handle, you needed to have several handy since, as they got older, the knobs got more and more brittle and many would crack in the process. The colored knobs were the best bet as the black, white and cream colored ones seemed to always crack when being pulled or pressed back on.
