    Default Dive Rite 900 foot (old style) Reel Modification

    I shamelessly copied the idea from a Light Monkey reel knob design. Bye-bye nylon screw!

    Locate the newly drilled hole in-line with the existing hole on the opposite reel face. This allows you to access the screw head via a #1 Phillips screw driver. You are able to use a hand driven countersink to recess a 3/4? long #6 machine screw head into the reel material. Commonly available nylon bushings will fit the DR knob nicely. Pass the screw though the reel face, bushing, knob, washers, and assemble. See the attached pictures.

    Less than 20 minutes!
