I printed this but can't tell how you put it together. You have more pics?

The two halves of the spool slide together. I didn't have to glue them but it could be a god idea. Screw goes through the back of the part that attaches to the pole and through the side of the reel that doesn't have the hole for attaching the handle. Screw then goes from the inside of the spool through the hole for the handle and in to the handle. That is it.

roughly how much line does this hold? This is a fine design, and I will be taking it fishing this weekend if I have time to build it.

I'm sorry for the delay. I am actually not sure how much this will hold. It depends what test you will be using. I'm using a much higher test than I would really need with this setup but it holds a lot. I don't think the capacity would be an issue for you.

Thanks everyone for liking and collecting. If you print one and have any input on how I can improve this, please let me know!!
