Wow thanks Mike.
Would it make sense that this was maybe done on some of the older reels in the 50's ??
It would be interesting to me if you possibly new when this was done and if Penn did it themselves as I certainly didn't  Wink

Thanks for the Video.
Pretty Cool.
Some day I will get to spend all my days Shark fishing.
Here is the Cabo and Boca 120.
Nice reels that will serve me well. Discontinued or not. Wink

You are the Muskie King!
I would love to catch just one.
Got a hairy ice storm last night.
Just enough to mess things up.
Lost power for 6 hours.
There are 35,000 that are still without.
My Oaks took a beating. They were touching the ground this morning.
At about 2pm, they were rising back up.
They haven't shred their leaves yet, and the ice bent them over.
Could have been much worse.

That internal swirl is called "Jeweling" and is usually done to hold grease or oil better than a flat surface. It can be done by hand with a jeweling tool or if you chuck up a pencil into a drill and use the eraser of the pencil you can create the effect. Be prepared to go through a lot of pencils, the erasers wear out quickly.

ONe of the parts that changed the most (and is probably least known) is the set screw for the handle nut. The threads were always the same, but the head of the screw changed size and shape multiple times over the years. I must have about four different size replacements in my parts bin....

That is true and it falls into one of those, ""Who Cares"" categories. I feel the screw changed because that single screw is the same no matter what reel you have. The set screw on a Penn 180 is the same set screw on a Penn 16/0. Vintage I feel may also have something to do with the variance.

Hi Mike, thanks for the great info.

.....just an observation.....the illustration shows a screw in spool shaft bushing, but Chris's reel has built in bushing.


Hello Ted,

Yes, that is why I feel the reel is special. It is a small size 150 yard side plate with the Penn 14 spool bushing. I cannot explain why it is that way, but, it is. I have seen other small Newport models and they do not have the integral molded in Penn 14 bushing.  It probably did not sell to well being the Model 14 was cheaper, had a larger line capacity and basically was the same reel. The Model 14 has three pillars while the smaller Newport reel had four pillars. Offering both reels did not make sense in my opinion.

Thanks Rob
I have a few older Penn 49A reels and have noticed they have the same pattern inside the left & right sideplates. For want of a better name I refer to them as having hologram design.
Some have a single rivet (below) holding the click spring others like the picture below have 2 rivets.

PTFE bushings are the best! Lately, I've become a fan of PTFE dots inside the bronze bushings. I've seen some bearings spin for ever, and I don't know that you can outdo well prepped bearings with PTFE, but I know that the PTFE bushings are great and never fail.
