Thanks Mo! The plates are definitely not faded, they have some sort of swirling going on in them. Now a coin imbedded would be interesting and awesome

A question that must be asked: Are these reels with the mixed colored parts lunch box specials made up of rejected parts?

No. There are special order mixed color part reels; but, I have never heard of one made in the factory from rejected parts. Rejected parts get thrown away.

A Jigmaster 500M, possibly mid-'60's. Should get me one more JM closer to a complete Jigmaster collection. This'n had the box and manual and I believe they probably all go together. Note the manual's "suggested" retail price for the M(non-plastic spool model): $17.95, and the bottom of the box is marked $19.95-?

Coolest thing for me is the nostalgia factor of seeing a good old fashioned "GUARANTEE"! on page 1(the reel above that is a picture of a 309M, not my 500M)Ah, the good old days...

Penn did a great job with their manuals, combining advertising for other reel models, up-grade parts, maintenance, repair, explaination of function, parts lists, etc.

Cool! Steel main gear. Chromed bridge, eccentric, and eccentric jack. Standard leather drag washers.
Yeah, festus, nothin on this one is worn too much. No gouges in the bakelite, no major scratchs in the chrome. Some minor pitting on the posts and then it looks like some major patina on the spool below the mono. Gonna keep it stock. Very smooth operatin 50+ yr. old Jiggy.

What's a best grease or oil for leather drag washers?

I haven't tried it but several guys have commented that neatsfoot oil works great. I'd say it prolly does being it's a conditioning agent for leather.


   I picked up another Silver Beach 99...I couldn't pass it up...these are such cool reels! This first pic is "just as I found it". Note that it has the plain tailplate.



   A former owner installed Newell bars and a #24-66 handle. I'm going to leave this reel "just as I found it", except for a little cleaning up.



   These bars were very scratched...a little paint should help out.



   This is the first time I've seen brake lining drags in a #5-60 gear! They're staying...just because.



   Here she is all dolled up, I really like the plain tailplate.



   These old skool hot rods are the whip. Cool

 Nice reel Mo

 Looks like the polished stainless spool. Those ain't easy to find and they are very solid lightweight spool. Very short lived production run makes me guess they were cost prohibitive and Penn made changes to stay competitive

Here's a 99 that I found on fleabay...a bit beat up, but hopefully it'll clean up nicely. I started taking it apart and noticed that there weren't any numbers on anything other than the foot...any ideas on how old this is?
Thanks,
Mike

I would say a very early 40's era but hopefully someone can add some more info for you.
