Fred,

Wildlife abounds on your property,

Do you see Oriole's from time to time??

With all my time in the high Sierra Nevada Mountains over my  lifetime,

I have never seen a Bullock's Oriole!!!!

Maybe sometime.....

See the Yankees and Baltimore coming this Sunday.  Dominick

   Got the bail bumper today. Had to dig the post from the original out of the hole, gave it a few swipes of alcohol, and glued the new bumper on. Thanks again Fred, this reel is 100% now. Cool

Nice!
I think I may need something similar for the Heddon 277 I just got.
Trying to find a schematic for it.

Any chance I could pick up a couple of these bail bumpers? Trying to make everything as much as original as possible.

Nice work Mo!  How does the 410 compare size-wise with the 306/406?  As for vibrations, I have a 300 that works perfectly, except that I have always wondered if the vibrations were really supposed to be there.   I may need to expand my Mitchell collection into more territory although I have my fishing needs covered.

The 410 is basically the same size as your 300, as is the 400. The 400 & 410 are high speed versions of the 300 and the 410 has roller bearings at the rotor instead of a sleeve bearing.

Mike: I saved up my money as a worker on the Dairy Farm to buy a Mitchell reel and went fishing when ever I could for Trout and Cat fish on the lake near by and on the three ponds on the farm. Those were the best days, a kid and his special reel and rod. Grin Grin.........................Joe

Hi .... I have a question? Are these rubber bumpers made to be glued in or does the rubber fit tight enough in the hole that it was just a press fit? I saw on another site on a repair someone had put WD40 on the post on the bumper to get it to slide in. I was planning on trying to glue mine in also and just wondered how they went in when installed by Mitchell. Thanks .... enjoyed your post!

Hi, I have a 410. It's not very pretty but I fashioned a bumper from an old windshield wiperblade, using the blade part as the post and shaping the rest with a sharp scissors.

 Hello All......I Have a collection of Mitchell Reels , Including 510, 410, 400, and many others that use this bail bumper, My 510 I bought in 1972 and still fish it on rare occasion, The Reel Is Very Durable But The rod Not So Much. A while back I got some Bail Bumpers And AR dog (Thanks Fred ), But Due To The Scarce Supply I Make Leather ones for my user Reels. Have a leather Punch Like Tommy, found a Garage Sale Ferrari red ladies belt for $1.00, punch out as needed, Glue to bail, replace as needed no harm to reel,  Also have other reel  with similar stoppers , Heddon and
Early Penn spinners. On Some Reels The Missing Bumper Will Cause line lay Problems.
 Smiley Barry

 P. S.  Moe, Glad you Got Your 410 !!!  Like Your reviews a lot.
