Wayne (el pescador) came by my house and dropped off a couple of reels someone had given to him.  One was an Ocean City Bay (circa 1931) and a Pflueger Interocean 300 (circa 1920) Patent date June 16, 1908.  They were in rough shape having been in a shed for a bunch of years.  These are the before pictures.  Dominick

Leave the gun.  Take the cannolis.

Nothing wrong with that meter, there are still several analog systems that go haywire if you try to measure something that generates a digital signal.

Great work on the reels, as is expected.

I forgot you posted this.  I checked it also after your post.  Sure enough there I was working away.  Dominick
