Makes you wonder what standards some folks have for how their reel is working ?? Handle turns ....................... good to go .................. never mind the grinding or lack of drag adjustment !!

Like many e-Bay descriptions -- "just needs some grease"...

Knowing Alan -- While it may not be a "Plinth Princess" when completed -- but it will be fully capable and ready to fish with no issues.

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.

You can barely recognize that as a reel!

You should find out how many years it hasn’t been serviced and multiply that number to your service charges.

What brand of reel is it?

I have no doubts it will work as good as new when you get done with it.

Looks like that reel got dropped on the rocks, bounced into the sand, and then got left there for a while as the water washed over it.  I hope the guy apologized about its condition when he gave it to you for service!

Careful guys, quite a few of Alan's customers follow this site.

We don't need to be making the boss and his customer uncomfortable when they pick up their reel.

Just a thought.

Then they shouldn’t drop off reels where the cost to service it exceeds its value.

The reason guys drop there reels off to be serviced is becausethey mostly have no idea what goes on inside a reel so you have to give them a break.
I know I get a lot of blank looks when I try to explain things.
But, yeah, it is a mess.

   This reminds me of myself...out on the boat rambling about how one reel has a better gear ratio than some other reel...and how yet another model has better drags...and then I notice my brother and Rob are sleeping. It's hard to remember most folks just aren't interested in those details. Undecided

Always a good feeling to get back to the basic reels we are all familiar with.

Thanks for sharing your work, Alan!
