Reel cleaning and repair is a multi-step process. When I receive your reel for service, it will be completely disassembled. The parts will then be pre-cleaned and inspected for any wear or damage. If any parts are needed, you will be contacted with an estimate of the costs. After the reel has been disassembled, the bearings will be soaked in a strong solvent to penetrate and break up all deposits of old oil and grit. The rest of the parts will then be cleaned by hand and readied for reassembly. After the bearings have soaked, they will be placed on a shaft and spun to check for smoothness. Your reel will now be reassembled and lubricated with premium grade lubricants.
If I find worn or damaged parts, you will be contacted with an estimate of the cost to replace the parts. I will not replace any parts without prior authorization. If you agree to the cost, I will do the repair and continue with the cleaning process. If you don't want to pay for the cost of the parts, or if they are not available, you will be given the option of having your reel finished with the worn parts, or you can have your reel returned to you by paying only the $10.00 inspection fee. It is important to note that not all reels can be repaired. Many have been discontinued and parts are not available. I will make every effort to locate the needed parts or to find parts that will cross fit from similar reels.
The cleaning service includes a full dissasemmbly and cleaning of your reel. A full inspection of all parts and bearings. With the basic service level, your reel will be completely cleaned The reels will then be lubricated with TG's Rocket Fuel oils.
