Re: Vintage Reel info wanted
Thanks guys. Heres what I was told by someone that collects reels on a major level:
Hi Joe, that would be a reel sold by Western Auto Supply, probably postwar late 1940's to 1950's, reel would have been made by Ocean City, Shakespeare, or Bronson, not a big $ grabber, there are people that collect Western Auto reels!
I think it's a pretty cool looking reel. I've never seen one without the conventional style handle.
