Thanks,

Will do, Ed. At Logan Airport in Boston waiting for my flight to DC, then a drive to Harpers Ferry. I'll post photos and look for big reels to picture. Maybe even reels as big as your head!

Lots of reels here already

Post by Richard Lodge »

Folks are showing up here Wednesday afternoon and the reels are spilling out of boxes and bins.
Here's a few glimpses for all of you in cyberspace:





Just a few of the reels Henry Caldwell brought from NY.

Photos from Wine & Reels Wednesday night

Post by Richard Lodge »

Here's a few random photos from our great gathering for Wine & Reels last night. Some very interesting reels were passed around, including an EVH B Ocean that Tom Harris brought which appears to have been a gift for Thomas Edison on his 74th birthday (it's dated Feb. 11, 1921). Someone did some serious scratching on the engraving, but still a very cool piece of history.



Here's an amazingly rare Oscar Allen 1903 patent reel Scott Edwards picked up recently. Scott has written a fascinating article about Allen and this reel, which will be in the July issue of The Reel News.



And Paul Manuel showed off a really, really old spike reel. This one could well date to the 18th century (or... ?). For those not familiar with these, the spike would go through a hole in the rod handle. Most spike reels have threaded spikes with a wing nut to hold the reel in place. This spike has ribs, but isn't threaded.



Pete Perina brought a sharp Conroys Maker reel to Wine & Reels. This angle shows some of the crowd.



John Elder hauled this custom-made mooching reel for show and tell. This is the reel, which came in a nice wooden case with two extra spools. The reel is engraved "Dr. F.N. Carrier from D.C. Jackling," but John doesn't know who made it.




Oh, and did I mention there are a lot of reels here?
