Finally lookin the the 110 I got at the flea market in Jan. Dirty as all get out. I have almost NO $ in this and want to go ahead and bend it back out a little. Just want to fish some walleye with it this summer. The bail spring seems OK when I take pressure off by hand and the rest will clean up enough to fish it. I just don't want to screw it up and make a parts reel out of it. Any advice always appreciated. Thanks everyone.

Doesn't look bad, Christopher --

Full disassemble, clean all parts, burnish any rough parts -- then polish them, use modern greases and oil, reassemble, realign the bail and angle lever, install new drags, microtune and adjust the functions -- should be good to go.

Many times on these little Microlites -- the bails are out of alignment after 50 years -- plus yours looks like there is a little chrome peeling off the bail wire which could cause a line cut (smooth it with emory tape -- "0000" steel wool -- and Nevr-Dull).  The bail must be tightened down (yours is loose which could affect function and catch your line).  Then, some careful bending with the palms of your hand will get the bail wire right.  Also, the angle lever could be bent slightly.

The bail must move freely -- not spread out too far, or too close to the rotor -- otherwise there will be friction stoppage because of outward or inward side pressure.

You'll be fine -- if you get into trouble -- no issues -- we'll help you out.

These two 110's are restored -- and were both much worse than yours before starting.

Best,

Fred

Hi Chris --

Received your DQ 110 Microlite in the mail today -- along with the (3) spools you are gifting me, and return postage.

Thank You!

I will get it done this weekend -- and will see how the Post Office is handling outgoing parcels on Monday.  

California is basically shut down -- and may become even more so.

There are at least 4 other parcels to ship -- and maybe more by Monday -- since the reel work is flowing across the benches during this weird time in our society.

May have to switch to FedEx or UPS so that outgoing packages can be picked up at my house.  PO will not come to our house -- but everyone else does. Just have to do a little research.  Might be a little more expensive -- but everything seems like it is already more expensive -- so what's the difference?  Will need to buy boxes, I guess.

Best,

Fred

Fred,
while back (still?), UPS Ground was reasonable & pretty fast
drivers told me "2nd Day Air" was a waste of money half the time
they went by ground & "kept the change",  Shocked
'cause they knew they could do it in 2 days
BONUS: $70 Insurance was included -- enough for smaller shipments

Fred,

Thank you for the advice on the bail wire - I do use steel wool when I incur pitting or stripping chrome but have never tried Nevr - Dull.

Thanks.

Nevr-Dull is great for a final super sharp shine & polish --

Works on all metals, bakelite, plastics.

Ted was the one who turned me on to this product around 6 years ago.

I am on my 5th can in that time. 

Old school -- and just works.

It does not fix chipped chrome over brass -- or gouges.  What it does do is gently removes surface film and polishes and restores the newness.

Best,

Fred

Got the little DQ 110 Microlite all done for you, Chris --

Decided to do a full disassemble & restore including oven-baked factory wrinkle paint -- as long as it was on the bench.

Since it was also important to test the line lay on the spool -- I spooled it up with fresh 6lb.

Lays perfect on the spool.

Will send it back tomorrow.

N/C.

Best,

Fred

I’m sure that reel looks better now than the day it was made.

Beautiful work Fred!

Thanks to Fred there are plenty of breakdown pics available here.  I may just pull the 110n that I have stashed and attempt my first ever spinner redo.
