Reconditioning reels

After seeing how many people are upset with the current market on cheap reels. I decided to start fixing old reels because I love tinkering.
Here's my first ones.

I have a Penn Del Mar as well except mine has a green handle. I'm still getting used to it but it feels solid for it's age. (30 years give or take). You make a good point about things from yesteryear being of higher quality.
