Although I probably should have the reel and bed knife sharpened on my 1948 Locke, I decided to try and back lap. The issue at hand, spinning the reel in reverse. Instead of making a machine to spin it backwards, I came across in a parts diagram a piece you add on to spin it backwards. I then scaled the drawing to full scale, got some sheet metal from the neighbor hood stop sign, traced and cut it out, added some $11 idler gears, some bolts here, and bam, it works (surprisingly well I might add). Here are some photos of the steps along the way.
