Hey guys I'm looking for some JX studs for my reel I can't find them any ideas I've already called avet, and the parts center we have gotten no replies in the last two weeks, any other ideas?

They are open as I just bought six JX studs last week. I dropped by the factory in person, but they answered my call to see if they were open.

Local hardware store. Stainless steel 1/4 bolts. You'll need to cut the heads off, I use a Dremel with reinforced cutoff wheel. Take your reel in the store to make sure. Buy extras to keep in tackle box.

... or do what Mullet said, except you'll need to take hex wrench with you.

Get yourself some 1/4 20 SS
Add a few flat and a lock washers to your list. Sometimes it's hard to get perfect length.

One too many turns of wrench will pop dimple out other side and make reel unusable. I know. But nothing sand paper cant fix.

Just count your turns to bottom of hole without clamp. That is your limit.

I saw this morning that they sell the factory Avet studs along with reel clamp and tube of oil for about $30.00 on eBay.

Great solution!

What was the length of you 1/4 20 replacement bolt? 1 1/2”?
I cut them to the size I need with a pair of vise grips and a band saw . Put a nut on them first and finish them with a belt sander . Removing the nut you put on before cutting will straighten out any threads you might have buggered up .

Yes
10/4. Thank you.

I’m reserching the shit out of this as I hate those darm lug caps Avet provides. I’m getting some traction with a product known as Binding Posts.
Stay tuned, I’ll report back.

Do you really want to know, ???? Here goes. My solution.

Allen socket head is a good idea until the Alum get stripped out. SS wins over alum, and galvanic corrosion. I hate Allens, looks HD, but when I need one it is not the right size. going back to flat and phillips for simplicty. Looking for barrel nuts in 1/4-20 in SS.

Been using 1/4-20 SHCS on a few of my reels for 8 years and zero issues.

For your clamp I would just use a button head instead of socket head.

ALso some of my old seekers the butts are way to fat to add the barrel nut.

No wrong way.

And your solution still uses SS ? If your worried about stripping you better add a nut to those studs . Your still putting the same strain on the threads .
