    All that milling seemed wasteful at the beginning. Why don’t they just get the general shape from castings first and then machine from there?

    because castings are more expensive than rounds. All the material machined out is recycled.

    A reel made from a cast is also generally weaker than one that is milled from aluminum bar stock.

    Fun to watch, especially after you have disassembled and re-assembled your own reel.

    Cool vid. I remember working at Abel Automatics when they had just four reels manufactured, that was back in ’86-’87.
