｜How to attach magnetic brake
Here are a main brake unit and a spacer.
4 magnets are attached to the main unit.
Take off the genuine centrifugal brake.
Put the spacer on.
The spacer is to adjust the position of spool.
Keep leaving a spring attached on the other side of the shaft.
Attach the brake unit on the handle side.
The position is on the housing of bearing that receives spool shaft.
Press the brake unit till it stops.
It's possible to attach the brake on the side of main frame.
In this case it's possible to use it in combination with genuine centrifugal brake.
To attach magnets,
it's better that magnetic poles(N and S) are placed next to each other in alternate order.
The brake gets stronger when the magnets are positioned side by side.
To remove magnets,
attract them by a wrench or some other steel tool, then pull them out.
When it gets backlash often, add more magnet.
If the brake is too strong, take some off.
If you need magnets more please purchase separately.
