Hi John, My name is XXXXX XXXXX it is my pleasure to assist you. There are 2 types of winding barrels that I have worked on. First is the type that should separate where you can insert the gut and then slide the gut through the hole the tie a knot. The next style had 2 holes in the winding barrel one large and one small insert the length of gut through the large hole tying a knot at one end so that when you pull the gut through the knot will catch on the backside of the smaller hole. I used a line with bees wax twisted into a cord. Try these options out and let me know what happens. Thanks Mike

Thank you Mike for your prompt answer. As it happens, while I was waiting for your answer I had another probe around the mechanism and saw the large hole at the side of the barrel, to which you refer.
However, it was nice to receive confirmation of what to do next and I am grateful to you for pointing this out.
