Default Re: Replacement reel seat

yeah, i've done that once before. i just used a simmer in a dep pot and ended up dipping twice in the water but it came off easy, relatively speaking. if the reel seat was uplocking into the cork grip's inlet opening, you may have an interesting challenge in piecing a new one together but it can be done.

as for acetone, many use it but it's highly volatile and not good for you or the environment. i'd respectfully suggest using denatured alcohol for cleanup as a lesser evil.
