I purchased an Accurate frame a while back that was supposed to fit a 145 Squidder but tried to no avail. The frame
 is 2" wide and seems to be a Penn screw pattern. Anybody have an idea of what reel it might fit? I searched through all the different frame post sizes on all the Penn reels that Mystic has listed and nothing in the 2" size width. Any help would be appreciated.

     Thanks Jim

I just inherited a few DAM Quick reels from my dad, one of which is a Microlite 265.
Everything looks great, even the original box with owners manual and a little bottle of oil and a few spare parts.
The only issue is the anti-reverse lever is loose/wobbly and I can see the fine threads are stripped so the 5mm nut can't get a good grip.
Also the "drag spring" looks bent. I think the threaded piece is called the "eccentric bolt".
The part numbers in the manual are 265-34 for the drag spring and 265-38 for the bolt.
Are these parts available anywhere? I'd love to be able to use these reels if possible.
The Microlite was on a Fenwick 5'6" Ferralite rod, there is also a Quick 220 on a Fenwick 6 1/2' Ferralite,
and a Quick Finnessa on a Fenwick 8 1/2' ferralite steelhead pole that looks unused.
The two larger reels are in great shape, but the Microlite needs attention.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Welcome aboard!

Are these the parts you need?

If so, PM me with your full name and address — and I can send them to you.

$5 + $5 shipping in a bubble envelope.

Your Father had good taste in quality rods and reels — nice combos.

Best,

Fred

The message they sent you was:

Hi, yes the threaded bolt is one piece I need, I think the nut is fine.
the spring I need is the wire spring that hooks into the slot on the bolt at one end,
and hooks over what I would call the "clicker lever" at the other end.
The spring is called the "drag spring" in the parts list, but it is an internal part of the anti-reverse mechanism.
What I referred to as the "clicker lever" is called the "drag lever" in the diagram.
It's amazing that you would have these parts!

The spring is shaped something like this:      _____O_____l
Thanks, Mike

———————————————————

OK, these should be the parts you need, I believe, Mike —

The part numbers you gave me I recognized from a later “Gladding” parts listing — after they assumed distribution and merged with DQ for the purpose of North American Distribution for a short period of time.

They got a few of the parts descriptions wrong, or mis-labeled.  The only spring on the “drag” that made sense to me — was the round compression wavy spring washer.  Sorry for the error.

Now I see what you are talking about — it is actually the anti-reverse dog spring.  

If these will work, send me your full name and address — and I will get them mailed today.

They are new old stock from around 1960.

Best,

Fred

Thanks Fred, those are the parts exactly.
I have sent an email with my address. Here are some pics of the gear I picked up.
The rod at the bottom is one I made for my dad's retirement in 1985
from a Fenwick blank.

Nice lineup, Mike —

Those are all top quality reels.

The 1001 is a neat little reel.

If these reels were manufactured today — with the exact same designs and materials — I would expect them to run in the $200 to $300 range.

Parts will go out this afternoon if the PO is open when we head down to Church — otherwise, first thing tomorrow morning. You should see the parts hopefully Saturday, maybe Friday.

Best,

Fred
