Richard Lodge was fortunate to get this old spike reel for his collection, but it had a few things that needed some help, including a missing handle and grasp and clicker. Thanks to some Elk horn from Rick Heitman (thanks, Rick!), some brass and a bit of lathe time, the reel is intact again.

Couldn't agree with you more, Paul. John did a fantastic job and I'm very proud to have this spike reel in my display now. Thanks, John!
