Paul Manuel's article on Lawson Machine Works connection to Burlington Metal Products, Inc. has me looking for this reel again. Anyone ever see the reel in this Burlington Metal Products, Inc. advertisement from March 1948? Thanks. Colby

Hi Colby, it looks like an Outdoor Products Castomatic reel. I see these frequently on Ebay, sometimes new in the box. I don't have one though. Cool ad. Here is a listing,

Yes, I've noticed the similarity. I did an article on that company for the Reel News a couple of years ago. Just trying to see if anyone might actually have the reel. Thanks. Colby
