I will keep that in mind, Andy --

While I have plenty of parts to put more NOS reels together than most folks could ever fathom -- there are a dozen other projects and opportunities that will involve the first 4 months of this year.

Major Parts acquisitions, backlog of builds - repairs - restores, organizing, finishing up shop remodel, selling major lots of NOS reel parts, completing orders, etc.

Then there are family priorities, home projects, vehicle projects, a few out of town camping trips, trailer acquisition, construction projects for friends out of town and neighbors closer, Church and Church Tech upgrades, and personal stuff.

A lot of this has been pushed back over the last 4 years due to the unprecedented, but necessary removal and processing of the beetle-killed Ponderosa Pines on our property.

My goal is to take a good bite out of the projects over the next 6 months -- so that I can go fishing on a regular basis by Memorial Day.

Please don't hesitate to remind me of your needs/wants over the next 6 months.  Will be spending a major portion of my time working on reels, restores, new builds, and such.  That is how I relax.

Best,

Fred

Leave the gun.  Take the cannolis.

 Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and he will sit in a boat all day drinking beer.

No sweat, Sir --

First, you give me 15 -- just to show me how -- then I'll give you 50.

Our elders are our examples...😀😀😀

oh, just do a couple against the wall; loop the vid; rotate 90...  Brave New World


seriously,

since you're short on time & overstocked on parts,

you could do complete DIY kits -- THIS WOULD BE THE PLACE!

It takes 3 times as much time to assemble the parts ready to build a reel -- than it takes to build the reel.

Putting together a batch of about 100+ various different DQ parts for a friend over in the UK -- it takes considerable time to make a list, pull the parts, maybe do a cross-check for fit on un-numbered parts, cross the parts off the list, bag and number the parts, ship.

I cannot even imagine putting together a kit of 85 or 90 parts -- without leaving something out -- then answering emails about procedures, tips, tricks, missing parts, lubes, fine tuning, etc..

No one would value my time -- and I would not blame them -- and a "kit" would cost more than a completed reel of new parts.  So that idea might work for some -- but probably not this child.  I enjoy building the reels.

My first priority is to the contributing members of our site -- then comes the rest of the world.

Everything will be addressed at the right time -- just grateful for being able and productive.

Best, Fred
