Loose reel frame on a Luna

7 posts in this topic

I have a Luna that the frame is loose on the reel seat mount, so the frame has play on it. I know there are the two rivets that attach the frame to the steel seating bar, is there any way to fix this?

Structurally, I think it's OK, but its enough that I can feel the play on a cast and the slight wobble on the retrieve.

Any thoughts or suggestions?

Thanks!

Chris I think you should contact manufacture about the problem, I'm guessing they will stand behind their product and hook you up. Otherwise what about tapping a phillips head screw driver down on the side of the rivets with the dimples and having a hard surface behind the other side, it just might tighten it up like you would like. If this makes sense. Or is there anyway you could get a vise grip in there to pinch it off?

Both my partners have their Lunas in the shop, the first 1 was gone almost 6 weeks for an anti reverse bearing. Same things wrong with the 2nd. BTW a buddy blew up my Okuma and took them 6 days with shipping to send it in and get it back and even covered repairs under warrenty even though they knew I got it used. Now to keep it out of their hands since they like it more than their Lunas grin Thanks Chris

Next time you guys have a problem with a reel, such as an anti reverse bearing, let me know. If you can get the parts, I can fix that stuff for you free. I have been doing a lot of reel maintenance and it is pretty easy if you have the patience. The rivits I probably can't fix at home, but the internals I have gotten pretty good with.

ha, that extra $100 bucks doesn't sound so bad now does it? With that said, my next reel will be a Luna!

    • This is great... I barely finished my '17 Yetti and now its already outdated.
    •   I'm on my second copy, the binding is not very good and before you know it pages begin to fall out, but as far as explaining technique, meat handling safety, use of curing salts and spices I think the book is a great resource.  I've given several copies to friends.  As far as the recipes, they are somewhat standard, but the same can be said for many other sausage books or online sources. I seem to make personal changes (like increasing garlic and black pepper) to most sausage recipes plus I sample a pattie to access the seasonings and will adjust if needed. I do think the amount of added fat is a little heavy handed for me, I find ground pork butt to perfect for me.  I prefer to make my own seasoning mix, and use very fresh spices... We order 3 times a year from spice companies to keep everything fresh, I only buy spices from the grocery store in an emergency, there is no guarantee of their freshness. 
    •   Auu, great plan. Oh by the way. Those aren't nails sticking through the roof sheeting is it? You may find a Shishkabob bird some morning if they get to running each other around in there!
    •   Auu, since it's not a Faith based discussion it should be pretty easy for you both to use humanist science facts to come to the same conclusion and agreement. Carry on!  
    • If our politicians were serious about reducing the cost of healthcare  they would be addressing the big pharma companies.   Check this out: http://wendellpotter.com/2016/03/the-lobbyist-who-made-you-pay-more-at-the-drugstore/    In my simple view of the world all that would be needed is a law passed saying the pharmaceutical companies could not charge more than 10% for the same drugs as is being charged by the next highest countries cost.  That would save Trillions over a 10 year period ( Caveat, I made that number up, but you get the idea )
