Fishing Reel

Fishing is a popular past time for many people. The parts of a fishing reel are mostly round so making a fishing reel on the lathe sounds appropriate.

 

Turning a Fishing ReelTurning a Fishing Reel
By: Mike Darlow
Mike Darlow has published a series of wonderful turning books. They are mostly educationally-based and are one of the best resources available for turners. In them, Mike shows how to make this fishing reel.

This fishing reel is a self-contained fishing setup so no pole is required. This would be wonderful for fishing in the local pond or stream. With it's small size, it would work well as a in-car or in-backpack unit.

The project is well detailed and has good pictures of the turning so it should be easy to make this 4-piece fishing reel. We hope that you will give it a try!
