    I've got some classic reels I'd like refinished. Bill Archuleta no longer restores reels, according to him. What other options are there?

    Depending on what you want done, I would contact John Williams over on s p e y p a g e s where he goes by ghostdncr. He machined for me a replacement screw for a reel spool as well as a new foot to fit modern rods for an old dingley. he does excellent work.
