How does a fishing reel work? I dont know what type of reel this is exactly, but it is a PENN Level Wind 209M (special purpose reel). Im mostly interested in gear interactions when handle is spun.

Howdy epelfrey-ga, The Penn Level Wind 209M appears to be a "standard" worm drive style reel. Fortunately for us, Penn has an exploded parts view for the reel in question. http://www.pennreels.com/exp_views/conv/407_209M%20_Rev%20_8.pdf You might want to zoom in on the details of the above image. As the handle is turned, it gets geared to turn the reel itself. Cranking the handle also rotates the worm, which in turn transports the line guide back and forth. There is the star drag which can be tightened or loosened as needed. Other than that, nothing much special. Although this FishingThailand.com page is not in English, it does show some of the "works" of 209M gearing, as well. http://www.fishingthailand.com/mcontents/marticle.php?headtitle=mcontents&id=112560&Ntype=1 Looking Forward, denco-ga - Google Answers Researcher
