A star and flat is all that’s needed. Preferably magnetic to help with the screws etc. If not magnetic can simply pull the screwdriver along a powerful magnet a few times and it will be magnetized.
Handy when a longer screwdriver is somewhat cumbersome. This will prevent scratching the sides of reel where a longer one is more prone to, for me anyhow.
To remove sand from reel or apply grease to reel or drag material.
8 - IN - 1 WRENCH.
Fitting most size reels useful tool when not wanting to use pliers of sorts that can scratch the part.
RPM Bearing Blaster.
Useful tool to flush out bearings with nozzle fed lubricants.
NEIKO Precision Oiler.
When wanting to add a few drops to a specific spot. This a thumb plunger model.
To be used when polishing parts of a reel. This compound is abrasive and extra care must be taken when applying amounts to be polished. Consistent use can change the dimensions of a part.
This compound to be used with a drill or dremel type tool for best results.
Came across this product at a local warehouse store and decided to buy it. Had originally planned on the Dialux Rouge bars but that takes up to 6 weeks to arrive from overseas.

I really wish more people would pay attention to these things and not be afraid to tackle reel maintenance themselves. I cannot take seeing a poor reel being serviced proffessionally anymore. Everyone should try all this valuable information that has been posted. Well done again, this is truly what fishing is all about.
