This customer sent us a Hardy L.R.H. Lightweight with the spool seized on the center shaft. In turn, the shaft spun the threads out of the body and rendered it useless as the body is no longer available.
We repaired this one by adding making a nut for the back side of the body to draw the shaft tight. The body needed to be milled to allow for the new nut. We think it turned out great, what do you think?
