Hi all, I'm looking for a "level wind screw guard" as Bronson calls it. It's the cover for the level wind assembly and my reel is missing it. I have both jeweled caps, but could use one of those as well as one is kind of chewed up. Both parts are for this version of the reel, which I believe is an early one. Thanks for any help!

Hi James,

Another Bronson part won't fit?

Cheers,

George

Good point George. Actually, many other parts would fit I'm sure. In fact, I put a random levelwind guard on that I had in my parts. The jeweled caps are a little harder to match and fit. My original intent was for a correct piece as this is one of Bronson's early gold seal reels. Though not worth much today, I didn't want to put a cheaply mass-produced part on if I didn't have to.

Thanks George. I was keeping my eye on a few that popped up recently. Most had the hex end caps, but were similar vintage. I like these early Gold Seal reels, and this is one of the few models that fit my budget. I didn't win one but there are a couple other possibles coming. Thank you for your help!
