Recently bought a TD control handle off of ebay and would like to see a set of instruction on how to set up the handle?

The handle is neat. I have one. Would never even think of using it. It’s totally impractical. It wasn’t designed to be anything more than a circle turner with a handy built in reel.

I have one too. Never even considered using it because it has the dacron lines. Actually now that I think about it, it may be OK with the new Spectra fishing line.

It is neat, and impractical. But I used it back in the 1950's. You could adjust the lines by moving the pinned cog over a cog or two. It's in a landfill somewhere. Sad

Yup, holding one in my hand it does bring back memories of a young me sitting at the basement workbench playing with that handle. Winding the crank and then  pulling out the lines and winding them back in, trying to get them even. Don't think I ever got them to work to my satisfaction and don't recall ever flying a plane with them. I certainly didn't know what the different line spacing holes were for, just figured the wider the better, more control movement meant bigger loops! Lotsa figure 9's resulted.
