The overall size is also a critical dimension because it shouldn't extend past the rest of the body of the sander so that the whole tool is one compact unit.

Questions for Analysis

1. What is the primary function of the device? How does it accomplish it?

The primary function of the devise is to wind fishing line and allow it to spool out. It accomplishes this by using the bail and spool in conjunction. The bail spins around the circumference of the spool there by winding the fishing line around the spool.

2. List possible user requirements for your product. Provide rationale for each requirement.

1) Smooth action: Comfort 2) Light weight: Heavy is tiring 3) Geared Up: works faster easier to maintain good speed when reeling in. 4) Strong: Reels get mild abuse when taken in and out of boats trucks and cars. 5) Corrosion resistance: water is a pervasive element when fishing. 6) Reliability: It must work when you want it to. 7) Compatibility: A reel is no good if it doesn’t fit on a fishing rod.

3. List possible engineering specifications. Which user requirement(s) do these correlate to?

1) Gear tolerances - Smooth action 2) Weight - Light weight 3) Gear ratio - Geared Up 4) Material properties – Strong Corrosion resistance 5) Vibration – Smooth action 6) Mean time between failures - Reliability 7) Percentage of fishing rods that fit the reel - Compatibility

1 What Decisions were made in the design of this component? The material as well as the surface finish and various dimensions which will be explained later.
2 What are the critical features and dimensions? One critical dimensions is the spool depth which determines how much line the spool can hold. Another is the surface roughness of the drag setting interface which determines the range or drag settings the reel can have. The line clip is also a key feature since it prevents line from unraveling from the spool after use. Lastly, the rounded leading edge ensures minimal friction with the line as it is being cast and the square hole makes a secure connection to the
3 What kind of loading do we expect to be on the component? The sanding platform will undergo lots of vibrations as it is jolted around from side to side to perform the sanding task. There will also be a force applied to the bottom of the sanding platform as pressure is applied while sanding objects.
4 What measures can we use to evaluate performance? The performance of this part is directly related to the performance of most other parts of the tool. The vibrations are a result of the motor, flexible legs, and offset weight. The softness of the bottom can be measured by sanding corners and evaluating how clean the sanding finish is.
