I've watched various videos on YouTube on servicing Mitchell reels ,
This has inspired me to service my own reels ,I'm wondering if anyone can tell me the equipment I should look for and what sizes ,also what cleaners and grease I should use
Any help would be most appreciated
Cheers

Greetings steets,
Welcome to the Mitchell forum.
Many years ago I bought a set of Craftsman screwdrivers, that were on sale, and ground the ones I needed to the fit my favorite Mitchell reels. I didn't know the correct sizes needed, so this option worked. Plus, if you take your time grinding, you can make them near perfect. I haven't boogered up many screws since.

Regards,
Ted Lanham

Ed:

Just to add to this - the photo of the Yamaha multi lube reflects old packaging. It is still called multi lube but the packaging here in Canada has changed and I can only get it in the 14 oz. tube for $7.99 (Canadian)

I would agree that this aluminum complex grease is a terrific product to use on our old Mitchell reels. :sFun_crazydance:

Thank you for bringing it to this forum.
