Found this in the bottom of my brother in law's abandoned tackle box.  Decent amount of rust on the inside, but it still turns.  Giving it the preliminary soak.  I can't find anything much about it....what say you?  It's a bait caster, but doesn't appear to have any drag, unless it has rotted away.  Plates are stainless steel.  I think it will be pretty when cleaned up.

I really need one of these for my narrow tiburon 3/0 all wi need is a stainless double dog set up

Rusty Old Colt, I still have a few new silver Tiburon T3N narrow frame/spool/rod clamp kits left.  They are 1 5/8" wide between the side plates, the same width as the 322, 501, 1/0, etc.  I can deliver one to you for $153.94 including shipping by USPS first class parcel with tracking.  Would you like one?

I also picked up a mint in the original box 1980's P220F if you are still looking for one.

I love an S, especially with red spool, they usually have steel mains and chrome plated innards. Only made for a couple years. Plates are delrin, not bakelite, and yes take-apart is in tailplate but other wise frame screw system is about the same.

aren't the fancy pens (MontBlanc, Pelikan, Pilot) similar resin?

Reel model really does not indicate what would be a good rod for it. The lb test to be used on each reel is a better guide to what rod would work.

This is reportedly a Harnell that was custom wrapped with Fuji BNLG's and seat, cork taped grip.  Not exactly sure, however it is a construction as you state. It was traded to me fifteen years ago by a kingfishing buddy, who has probably passed on now, in exchange for a Thorhammer-matched rewrap of his gold Fenwick anchor and fighting rods. Shown with it's motor.

I have some more of these rods somewhere.

Phenolic resin is still used today.  You may have some in the room with you.  Notable to me are bonding abrasive belts/discs, bonding cut-off and grinding wheels and laminating plywood.  The whole issue of formaldehyde fumes coming from plywood is because of the phenolic resin. 

Trouble is, I can't buy some phenolic resin for love nor money.  Well, maybe if more money than I have was thrown at it.  It could be easier on the mainland where you can avoid the problem of sending phenol on an airplane.

Oh... and the Resourcinol waterproof wood glue that you used to use is sort of like phenolic resin.  But, instead of a phenol ring structure it has a benzene ring structure cross linked by adding formaldehyde.

If your grill is a workaholic, he is loving life!  If not, then he is an unhappy camper.

Great questions.  I want to be doing just what you are doing by this time next year.

Where places are you fishing at?

Baker beach in your pic?  Love that place.
