For some reason, the handle wouldn't turn on this one.

An overabundance of grease has turned to hard beeswax.

But you already knew the answer to that!

Take the reel fully apart -- clean every part inside and outside -- polish and burnish all metal mating portions.

Reassemble, use modern synthetic grease and oil -- grease on the gears mixed with about 1/3 oil will allow this little DQ 265 Microlite to work as good or better than when it was new.  Only a drop of oil on the steel shafts such as the crank, bail operation, oscillation auxiliary gear, springs, crank knob, etc., and spool shaft will yield superior results.

This is possibly my favorite small DAM Quick reel.  

Why?

Because it incorporates the same exact engineering and mechanical design of its biggest brother -- the simple, overbuilt and well engineered DQ Super 270.  (2) reels of the same exact era -- that are very functional and effective today.

If you find that any parts are needed -- just let me know.

Best,

Fred

Self-worth is how you value yourself. It’s not based on what others think of you or the things you have (or haven’t) accomplished—it comes from within. But it’s easy to forget that our worth isn’t determined by outside forces -- each of us sets our own price.

In life, be flexible, willing to listen to others, willing to change your mind based on your good judgement -- that is how progress is made, and new horizons are discovered.  When the winds of change blow -- A flexible limb moves and thrives -- a stiff and stubborn limb just snaps.

Already taken care of my friend.  The drag had a single teflon? looking washer.  We'll see how it does.  I've got another that the oscillator is broken on.

Hell, if I'd jumped on all the dames I'm supposed to have jumped on, I'd have had no time to go fishing.

 That reel appears to be very lightly used. A great score... Jeff
