Found what you needed in an old bin of Shakes spools, stashed years ago in the storage container, Mike.

PM me your address, and I will drop it in the mail tomorrow.

N/C.

Best Always,

Fred

There are ten reasons to consider when choosing your next fishing reel.

The first is to pick a reel you like — The other nine reasons don’t matter.

Mo: Are you the reel service & Repair guy for the area? If not you should be!

   Hee hee...nope Joe...I'm just a guy who likes to work on his reels.

Before you pull the trigger and buy a spool, Mike -
Let me look through the old bins of spools.
Recently found a stash of new still in plastic bags and boxes of Shakespeare spools — might be what you need in there.

Mike: A lot of people are missing out on you talent.

Joe

   That would be fantastic Fred, as I'm having absolutely no luck finding one. Just let me know how much you want for it.

   I'd like to thank everyone for their interest and kind words...all the support keeps me inspired. Cool

Deep spool on the way tomorrow, Mike —

Splitting timber rounds and piling bark today — at least until noon.  After that it will be too hot to work outside doing that kind of chore.

Started early today.

Best,

Fred

   How many times has Fred came to the rescue when I needed a part? I've lost count! Boy I sure hope it's not as hot out there as it is here...too hot to be splitting wood...you are a trooper brother! Just came in from tending a little garden out back, and a few flower beds around the house, I was dripping in 15 minutes. Gonna grab a cold beer and slice this nice home grown tomato. Cool

Nice assist, Fred.

Into hot, humid weather in Minn. too; mowed the lawn this AM & tried to get done early, but got sidetracked.  Now, I'm just tuckered out.

   I put the 2065 on an 8ft. medium action, fast tip Daiwa Emcast surf rod. Probably couldn't assemble a better combo for the price...lotsa "bang for the buck" here. I'll use it to cast plugs and spoons while fishing a hi-low bait rig on the ol' 2091A. Cool

   Got the spool from Fred, it's a real nice spool. It had an unused set of stock leather drags in it. I'm going to set those back and put a carbon fiber set greased with Cal's in there. I also swapped out the leather undergear washer for a delrin. It will keep that spool spinning smoothly if a lunker grabs my bait. Thanks a ton Fred, now I have a surf/pier deep spool and a creek/lake shallow spool. Cool

Hi Mo
Not to confuse things, but I just thought it was interesting that Shakespeare kept the word "wonder" for their later made in Japan 2400 series.
I have an old Ambidex reel that was made in England and the company was related to Shakespeare later on and I have seen the 2400 series called "ambidex" also.

Yes Basto, they made a lot of "wonder" reels over the years. Sorta reminds one of the "oreno" line from South Bend...Bass-Oreno lures and Cast-Oreno reels. Cool
