Well I don;t think chipped is the right word but after my normal abuse the edge of he spool on the reel is a little rough and causes the braid to catch a bit now and then.

Since it's some sort of metal alloy can I just sand it down with some wet & dry, wet I guess rather than dry for a better finish??

Cheers!!

Often wondered what to do in that situation. Maybe some hard epoxy/varnish over the rough bits? Or buy a new spool.

Polish it out,but you will need to wash it in over a slightly bigger area.
Get a lolly pop stick (soft wood) and square off the end,then get some 1000-1200 grit wet and dry and use it wet with parrafin to give you a bit more lubrication.
Cut off a strip of the wet n dry the same width as the lolly stick and fold it over the end and work it in a diagonal motion to take out the damaged area very gently also using the parrafin as lubrication.
Then finish it off by using a sweeping motion left and right to blend it in etc.
To get a better finish you can put some Autosol from a car shop onto some tissue and rub it round to shine it back up etc.
Dont use anything coarser than 1000 grit on the ally.
