I am working on a group of 5 reels, and have enough parts done to dry fit them. Here is an illustration. Still have to make 2 nickel silver parts (crank screw, click end bearing cap) and the wire pawl springs. The aluminum parts here are not yet finished; still have to sand and anodize.

do you make your pawl if so out of what materal and how is it done thats something else i do not know about i think you make pegs of some type to hold the springs
to the pawl is that right?
I settled on Delrin for the pawl; see two earlier post on pawl life test. For this reel, a metal pawl was too loud.
Indeed, the music wire spring is anchored by grooved pegs, pressed into the click end plate.
