Perhaps you'd be interested in a replacement ABU-MATIC 170 in excellent working order and/or an ABU Ambassador 5000 parts reel w/good drag components. You could use these for parts donors now & in the future. I'd also consider rebuilding the reels you own using whatever parts are needed from the reels I have. I'd sell the 2 including s/h for $50, repairing them is not an easy thing to estimate w/o seeing them 1st & generally gets more expensive than most people think reels are worth. Spare parts for obsolete reels get harder to find all the time, what is needed to repair old reels often requires dismantling them completely.
