Corroded bearing to spool shaft

Shimano Bantam 1500 LC is a popular reel in the Puget Sound for salmon fishing.  The problem is that they are not longer made and parts are scarce.  I love working on them as they are pretty simple in design and function.  However, when the spool bearing is corroded to the spindle and you can’t…
