Can a broken reel foot be repaired
rak posted a topic in Reel Maintenance and RepairHave a couple of different reels that have broken feet to attach to a rod. A replacement side plate with an intact foot is not available anymore. My thought was to cut off the foot from a scraped mitchell head and weld it in place of the orvis foot. One welder told me it is "pot metal" and probably couldn't be welded. I don't think that JB Weld would work. Has anyone had any luck with this type of repair?? Thanks
