It's a thirty or forty dollar combo.  How much of that can the reel alone be worth?  

   This is why we clean bearings...

The price of new parts for a junk reel would make a good dent in the cost of that DAM that would last forever.

   And this is a very good point.

It's a thirty or forty dollar combo.  How much of that can the reel alone be worth?  Half?  If so, it's a fifteen or twenty dollar reel that he has already invested a few hours in repairing.  Time has to be worth something and parts would be throwing good money after bad.  By just getting it working the life of the reel has been doubled.  The price of new parts for a junk reel would make a good dent in the cost of that DAM that would last forever.

Well put, Steve! Throwaway reels are just that, throwaways. They're not worth the money or effort it takes once they've been neglected. That's why maintaining and repairing the older quality reels is so-o-o-o important!
