Hello This Is Ed Bingle. Owner of Rods1 Vintage Reel Parts.
After I joined Orca I talked with John and Betty by email and discuss creating a site for vintage reel parts. At the time I was not really ready to start throwing my site around because I didnot have much inventory on the site.
I make it a point to have a picture on each item that represents that part as a group are an individual part. Some parts I only have one of, others I have multibles. 90% of my site is new obsolete parts from manufacturer.
I am also starting to buy antique reels and dis-assembling to make a part inventory for hard to fine parts that will be in the used part section. This will be started in February . I have several Hurd reels that I have started with.
I have over 40,000 parts but have only posted 1,500 types of parts on my website. This is a lot of hard work that is time comsuming. I have a full time job so all of this is done on my off time.
Some of you know me and a lot don't. I will be fair and honest with all customers and will try my best to help
in anyway I can.
I have been known to send parts to people for no charge. In return I only ask that they tell someone about my site.
I hope to have a site in the future to be a go place for vintage parts.

I would have been futher along but got hit by Irma (Hurricane). I had to box everything up to protect it. It has been a fit trying to get my inventory back where I could find the parts when I got an order. Still working on Irma related damage at home and at work. But things are getting back to normal.

Thank you for taking the time to read this. You cannot have too many friends in this special hobby, I want to meat each of you and thank those that have shared hard work and gave us the education about so many reels. I am 62 years old and still learn something ever now and again.
I am in the ORCA vendors list. Feel free to contact me anytime.
Oh buy the way I know ORCA has a great library but if you cant find a reel schematic I will try and provide one to anybody for free if I have one. I have a lot of really old manuals and catalogs.

Boy have you ever met anyone that talks so much? LOL

Thanks, Ed. One of these days if you would send me a list of the catalogs you have (and manuals too!) I can compare to the list in the ORCA library and maybe find some issues we are currently without, or maybe even make higher quality scans of what we already have! I can be reached at s(dot)d(dot)lehr(at)comcast(dot)net.

I have been getting a great response. And most of the request are not parts in my inventory. This is OK but I have to look for parts that are in bulk boxes when finding these items. So I ask for patience with me. and if you don't here from me in a couple days please contact me again. I try to stay in contact with everyone but some times someone will slip through the cracks. The parts on my website I can go right to and find the number and done. All the rest of the parts have no easy way to find because they are in boxes and trays stack together. It requires a lot of space and organization to keep an inventory where you can find something. There I go rattling again.
Thanks Ed
