Not nearly as much as the time you have put into it....

   So this is more like the crome spray paint you can get in the hardware for 6-8 dollars  ?   Another words still a paint base and not chemical strong ?  joe

INteresting process. I would guess that it is more than a chrome paint; clearly there is a chemical reaction occurring on the surface of what is being "painted". For me, the test would be scratch-resistance. I'm guessing the surface coat isn't very hard; not nearly as hard as plating.... but it would appear to be quite glossy.

it is a little bit better than a hardware spray can,,,alsa at $55.00 for 4oz  and then you clear coat it with automotive clear,,,so it's as scratch resistance as you car,,,i would love to do a rod blank for my 9/0 with this stuff just to see what it really looks like dry not wet like in all the pictures
 any rod builders here  Cheesy

 Grin  All part`s made for the original handle design .     Pretty much the shapes and contorts are there , the lock bar is a little longer than i wanted .    But i need to keep it a long and thin it down to get it springy...              I have most of the parts for the later design handle made , still got to make the lock plate...       Some pictures ....
The 4 40 screw looks a little to big , but that is what i have to work with ....
When i get a chance to do some long cast , i will hang it on "fruit loops "  a 9 foot stick..      Just too many trees ,windows and wind shields in the neighbor hood ....     
Once i feel this works well enough ,i will finish sanding and polish the h---  out of it .     joe

   Fred I can not thank you enough for all your information and your pictures ....
   Have you had the chance to do some test casting yet ?     Interested to see how many adjustments you may need for varying conditions .
   Just finished making the second arm with the sliding lock assembly ....    Now all that is left is to sand and polish all the parts...      More pic     Again thank you .   joe

The original Anti-Backlash device you modded yours after, Joe -- works very well -- no backlash at all in five casts.

No idea what the price point for the device would have been in 1952, or so.

Do know that a Squidder sold for $25 FTV, and a Surfmaster was the "Poor Man's Squidder" -- that sold for around $14 -- $15 in those days.

My loose suspicion would be that the kit -- (if even available separately, or even mass produced as a kit, would be in the $15 - $20 range) -- plus knowledgeable installation labor.

If these were ever offered as an add-on -- it could be that the only way to get it was to go to the source, or to go to a tackle repair shop that handled these on a limited basis for surfcaster anglers.

There would be some specialized, precise, and delicate installation work required -- not everybody could or would be able to install it properly -- without ruining the tail-plate.

There are still too many pieces of this puzzle missing to know very much more -- without finding a relative, co-worker, installation directions, owners manual, advertisement, original kit, etc...just guesses on our part.

I also suspect that since there are so few of these around (2 or 3?) that they were not widely distributed -- just as more of a specific item for those wanting one.

The fact, that-- as a knowledgeable group of Penn collectors -- we have seen so few of these -- leads me to think they were a clever and good idea -- that for any one of a dozen reasons -- were not mass marketed.

As to current price, like with anything of collector value -- any $$$ number is pure conjecture -- until one sells the item -- then the exact price is known for that day.  And these prices can vary quicker than the weather.

Again, great craftsmanship, Joe.

Best,

Fred
