Thanks Gents i am happy you like the job. now i look for a new wreck to deal with :-)
I'm in dire need of some restoration, possibly a complete rebuild, but I think I'm beyond even your powers.

A few months ago I posted pictures of a similar reel I bought, viewtopic.php?f=28&t=8768&p=305086&hili ... em#p305085 this is what they can be like if they're looked after.

Wow. Lovely job Sir. I have never tackled such a wreck. It's a wonder it didn't end up in the bin. It will be a fantastic reel when your finished.

Stunning as all ways Evert!

Another reel saved from the scrap heap!
I walked across an empty land
I knew the pathway like the back of my hand
I felt the earth beneath my feet
Sat by the river and it made me complete.

Evert could you tell me what paint you use please?
