Aside from eBay (don't have account or Paypal need one of the grandkids to set one up for me).
do you know other places online to pick up used reels fairly cheap to play I mean WORK on?

I live outside a small town in nowhereville Oklahoma and and at the present time wife isn't doing real well and I stay near house ,other wise might check out pawnshops in Tulsa but have to stick close

Personally, I like to cruise Flea Markets . . . Since you are in Oklahoma, this may be helpful !

 If you have a particular reel in mind then post up here or other fishing forums as a "want to buy". Lots of us have some reels that we don't use and may want to part with.

Pick up a couple of small, shallow pans . . . One to put parts in, during disassembly, and a second one to put parts in, after cleaning, prior to re-assembly.

Try to keep your parts "in order", as it makes re-assembly go so much smoother . . . Be sure to get a schematic, unless your are VERY familiar with whatever reel you're working on !

     if anyone buys an inflater kit to use on grease guns and the adapter that the needle valve screws into has the two holes in the side if it was like mine one of the holes seeps grease.(I trashed them )and then ordered the 17 piece accessory sets Campbell hausfeld and guess what they were the same way one hole leaked  Roll Eyes

I checked to see how deep the threads looked  I cut the adapter off below the holes ,needle valve still screwed in all the way(no leaks)
   I know I have different size 1/8 pipe nipples, reducers and couplings  and lots of brass fittings hidden very well somewhere in the garage LOL finally gave up looking for them
Did find a lot of other stuff in the cans ,buckets,boxes that I forgot I had Cheesy

  I hear ya loud and clear!   I learned half a century ago after tearing a few down that ended up parts in a bag or can.
  To stop that I made sure I had sets of the same reels thinking that would help,tore down three out of four once before I figured out what was wrong! LOL

1) get a digital camera that connects to computer & take plenty photos as you disassemble -- esp. for no schematic, or crappy old schematic

2) save your egg crates for disassembly of smaller reels that are reasonably clean (no soak needed)

it's a good way to reassemble in reverse order

    I'm  the proud owner of the brass bearing packers! They are very nice!!!
And today got my official AT wrench, (the first one was sent with bearing packer but
box busted open enough to lose it by post office)
  I made two different pin pliers, and bought other random tools
Grabbed a makita MAC700  air compressor
And have two power screwdrivers,
    I haven't decided on the ultrasonic cleaner, Is a 1 1/2 gallon size big enough for let's say doing 9/0s or bigger?
I don't know what size to get but bet I end up with one.
How many reels do you need before it's worth having?
  Thanks

The thing about a large sonic cleaner is the amount of solution it takes to run it.  Making up a gallon or two of Simple Green is not too bad, but a gallon or two of naphtha would get expensive.  You might end up putting parts in a small jar of solution and putting the jar inside the sonic cleaner filled with plain water.  This is not to say that 1.5 gallon is not the right size for you, just something else to think about.

You can thank Fred for that one Dave.

I have small reels and a small sonic cleaner; maybe a pint.  But still put stuff in jars.

     I haven't decided on a size of ultrasonic yet planned on using containers in it like Fred.
For now it's a new hobby Grin and I have spent a lot more than wife knows....
  Ordered some parts from  pennpartscotts yesterday drag sets washers and made sure I got 15-20 of different screws and springs ect and other random parts from eBay and have  been bidding on a few reels

  I have been degreasing,cleaning parts first in gas then in Coleman lantern fuel and than in a container of dawn dish soap with hot water and scrub with brush if necessary it seems to work but it takes awhile
