The local tackle shop has some new old stock. One is a Fin Nor Ahab 8 and the other is a Fin Nor Ahab 12. Both are spinning reels. I cant find much information regarding the drag ratings on these reels. Does anyone know how much drag they produce? Thanks.

I don't know what the drag ranges are but the design of the drag adjustment know is provided with a spring so that you cannot over-tighten the drag that could lead to a bent shaft, stripped gears, of sorts. 

It's a heavier reel, but built tough for sure, with features that will help in the longevity of the reel

I have one setting on my bench that I can't find a parts source for, they are a nice reel though.

It's the spring in the drag knob.  In order for you to get more drag out of it, you need to compress the spring fully before the drag numbers increase.
