J.W. Young & Sons Trudex Center Cap Replacement

J.W. Young & Sons Trudex Center Cap Replacement

Posted by Mike M. on 2020 May 14th

This old timer came to us with a broken center cap. As these are long gone, we needed to make one. I chose aluminum for this job as it matched the reel well. It's much stronger than the Bakelite (hard plastic) cap that was original, and should last forever now. If you're looking to get one of these caps made up for your reel, whether it's a J.W. Young, or any other reel, we need to have the reel here at the shop. This is because nothing was computer controlled in those days and because of that, many times holes are drilled slightly off center or machined slightly off because they were made by hand :)
