New to this site, but wanted to show off my latest project. I built a threaded barrel, mortised insert reel seat, including all the hardware for a rod I am building. Here are a few pictures.

I machined all the hardware from brass bar stock, and the insert is marble wood. Here are a few in process pictures.

Turning the insert.

Single point threading the barrel.

threads finished.

Tapping the locking nut.

Parting off the sliding ring.

Relieving the barrel for the reel foot.

I plan on making more in the future, will improve the processes and the finished product.

Thanks for Looking.
