Joe,
I'm a little late to this party but your reel reminds me of when I purchased an M1 Garand from the CMP and it was packed full of grease and Cosmoline. The guys over on the Garand forum have a good trick. They first wrap the greasy rifle in paper towels (to soak up the grease) and then they wrap the whole thing in a heavy black trash bag and leave it on the dash of the pick-up on a hot summer day. Repeat as necessary until most of the waxy grease is gone.
Have you tried heat yet? It might do a number on that dry waxy grease. I would suggest a heat gun, boiling water, or the black plastic bag on the dash. Just make sure to remove any plastic parts before heating.
