On the primary reel I use I've run in to an issue with the slide and axle. The gear that drives the slide grinds within the slide. I'm able to retrieve very roughly the line with of course improper line lay because the axle isn't cycling it's just the rotor spinning.

So I've now been through 2 additional sets of gears and slides with the same problem in any number of configurations. The only constant is the body and side plate.

Could a simple shim solve this?

Your problem with the 300 axle and oscillation slide seems to me to be a problem of not going together properly and not a shimming problem. The axle goes in the housing flat side up, there is a hole close to the end of the axle, the oscillation slide has a pin that then goes in the hole in the axle, put together properly with the rest of the parts the axle has to move in and out, and should not bind at all. Hope this helps, John.
