I joined this forum yesterday and I am looking forward to learning about what kind of an accumulator I am and where to contribute any worthwhile information I have. Thank you for the opportunity to be here.

Thank you Midway Tommy D.

In terms of what I have been collecting/accumulating in round reels I have older Pflueger, Ocean City, and Penn, mostly because they were easy to obtain a joy to own. I also have various brands of old and some early spinning reels.
I like to remove old grease from these reels and get them running smooth again which has made my hair turn grey.

Trying to post a photo.

Meisselbach No.50

Well, this isn't going well.

Maybe later.



This seems to be as far as I can get.

Another effort.

Obviously, I'm not following the script.




To my surprise I stumbled my way into getting a image in the post.

Good job, Joe, and a fine reel! Meisselbach reels are a popular collectible with quite a few people in ORCA. Both Phil White and Roger Schulz have written excellent books about this prolific reel-making company.

Welcome Joe,

These instructions are in the announcements on every forum. viewtopic.php?t=15596. The trick you are missing is to insert the image shortcake tags into your posts using the helper code on the image upload window.

Code: Select all

Hi, Joe. Welcome.

After you upload your image(s) just choose (click) "thumbnail" or "Regular" and the code will be inserted wherever your cursor was in your post. Will look like this:
