    The top cap can be removed with moderate force (go ahead, don’t be shy) and can be put back on. Many cassette deck reels use this assembly method.

    Clean the metal shaft with some white spirit then some DTE oil may be applied inside the reel’s central hole (one tiny drop) before reassembling. The felt washer shouldn’t be oiled.
