The cogwheel of this model is secured by a press fit.
To prevent damage or scratches to the spool, please remove the spool in the following manner.
1. Prepare a 1 mm diameter octopus thread and thread it through the gap in the cogwheel of the genuine spool.
2. Pull it out once and pass it through the gap in the cogwheel again.
3. Tie the threaded yarn into a loop using a train knot or similar method.
4. By tying, two loops are formed, and a screwdriver or similar tool is passed through the two loops.
If you do it with your fingers, please prepare a stick-shaped object, as it will bite and hurt.
5. Pull the cogwheel off the spool.
6. It came off safely.
Please be careful not to lose the cogwheel, as it may jump when removed.
7. Attach the removed cogwheel to the microcast spool and secure it with the supplied C-ring.
Thumbing with the spool rim may cause the anodized aluminum to peel off due to friction.
Thumbing should be done on the line winding surface of the spool.
