TJC,

 

How wide are your slots that you drilled if you don't mind me asking. I removed the bail wire mount on the one that I was working on too and love the look. Beautiful balanced appearance to yours!

rhody, you don't really need to rebalance.  the kit has a small fitting that takes care of that.  also, on my custom one where i cut the bail wire off.  it didn't throw the balance off.  hope this help. -mike.

Canalmadman, I was thinking of actually grinding off the bail wire post altogether, where that piece from the kit is supposed to get screwed into. It looks like in the picture above, this reel has had the same thing done. if you look opposite the manual pickup arm, there is no bail wire post with that thing screwed in. It will give the rotor a nice look, without having that useless post on the other side, but after removing all that metal, and not using the counterweight from the kit, the rotor cup will probably be out of balance. Probably will need to experiment with pouring some lead in a couple of the compartments on the bottom of the cup.
