   The stand on that 49A isn't a clamping stand like normally used. Maybe a real early version or prototype?

Ha, some tricky repair shop stole the Jigmaster 500 stand off the 49A and replaced it with an early Long Beach 67 stand. That is a dirty trick.....

      Early 9/0 frankenreel
This all started with 2 gen one 115’s in about average shape, certainly not minty, one of them had a homemade front lug installation with the lugs fashioned in copper that was probably a water pipe in a past life, The inside rings and plates had been cut to make them fit.  Not happy about that but by god it was a gen one.  Of all places Etsy had an early gen two, no front lugs that I grabbed to get my gen one back to “more correct” with the unmolested inner rings.  The Etsy special turned out to be a mess of weirdness, a numbered 114 handle, external drags with no felt washer or collar cap and a few miscellaneous missing parts.  My thanks to Butch Carey, Scott at Mystic, Maxed Out and Reelytyme for helping me get this old girl into a functioning pile of nuts and bolts.  Now a question for 1Bad350, is that hole in the arbor too close to the edge for a gen two?  I wonder if this really is a spare parts special.

I'm now the proud owner of Glenn Fukumoto's Penn International 16S two speed!

It was sitting on the table at the clubhouse when I arrived on Sunday and I said if it didn't sell by the time the trip was over it was gonna be mine. It almost sold a few times but fate intervened and it was still sitting on the table Monday night and I snatched it up. I'm sure there's plenty of good karma left on that old reel and Glenn will bless me with a big fat tuna for keeping it fishing!

Hi all,   Bit of a mail call here.

Has been quiet on the western front of late,  In a real battle to land a special package from State side for the last couple of months.
But it has been all in vein so far.... more on that later.
But what arrived today, was a great shelfy, from the box, it's a 32-38 Bridge City.
Haven't cleaned the reel up yet, it looks in OK condition, Box is OK, very bright and colourful label.
Love these 30's reels and boxes.....

Col

BUT, Just to pin point the year of the bridge city and the box, a little better.
This came along with it, folded under the reel in the box.
It's got a wee corner missing, and showing it's age a tad, But, a 36 it is indeed....

But, in saying that, the scalloped handle nut and retaining screw, shouldn't be 36 year correct Huh?..
Damn having these books of Mikes, they keep bursting my bubble  Grin
Even the catalogue shows the 36 reels apart from the Senator, should have the hex handle nut.
Strange that someone would have just added the 36 catalogue/pamphlet.....

Thanks guys.

   Mo, it's this site that I've gained all the info and of course Mikes books.
Now that I can use the search function  Grin...
  Sometimes I'll see something on the big sale site, next thing, I have mikes books open beside me, the lap top open and searching old posts here,
  There's always so much to learn.  
 Retaining that new info is the hardest part  Shocked  I'm always in awe of some of you blokes, with all that knowledge.
 To learn the other day about Chris's Coronado find, then to see Dom and Martin comment on it, was an awesome read.

Col.,

First I want to say, that is a great find.

It is a 1936 catalog and 36 box, it could be a later reel or some one changed the handle and used the locking style. It is like splitting hairs. Are we going to believe the catalog like it was the the only possibility. Moving to 1937, you see all the reels in the catalog (not including Senators) still have hex head handle screws except the Sea Hawk, which uses a scalloped screw without a locking screw. Weird. I know the 1936 is calling for all Penn reels except the 115 to have a hex head screw but what if in the real world, some left the factory with locking screws? Life as we know it would still be happening. So consider the possibilities. It could be an early factory release, a repair shop could have changed the handle to a locking type (most likely the most probable), the owner could have changed it or it could be a 1938 reel that was put in the wrong box. I guess with a time span of about 80 years, any one of those possibilities could be true,

Best to all,

Mike C.

Thanks Mike,
                   Yes, the catalogue is the first non numbered one I have managed to get, so pretty happy with that.
     The photo doesn't show up the staining and general ageing it has, but really really happy to have it in my collection.
In fact, the only other Bridge City I have, is a 250 yd, 4 post, but a maroon colour,, still reading up about that.
 It would have been Xmas to find the catalogue with a first year Senator and it's box, alas, but the Bridge City is still a good find  Grin
 Still lots to find, slowly but surely   Grin
Thanks for your insight

Col
