  1. I'm trying to get some info on the Airex Durods . I know they were made in the 40s an 50s an as far as I know there was a 6' and a 6 1/2 model an that's as much as I can find on them . Anyone have any more info or give me a link on them ? Thanks ahead Jim
  2. I have the top section with both ferrules on it outside tonight letting the cold get to it . I put a few drops of Kroil oil inside the female ferrule standing with it up so it wouldn't leek out . I made a jig to fit around the male ferrule out of wood in two pieces an screwed together with a hole the size of the male but smaller then the female lip on the ferrule. Planning on putting it in a length of PVC pipe longer then the rod section with the wood jig over the opening. Slide a dowel sick inside the male an tap the dowel with a hammer. Hope this will work .
  3. Tried the icing method but it didn't work that good for me . It did come apart but both male an female ferrules are still together on the tip section now but not on the butt section. I guess I'm getting closer but there yet LOL Bet these ferrules have been together 50 years or more . Any other ideas ??????
  4. I'm restoring an old bamboo saltwater two piece rod with it's ferrules stuck together for many years . Does anyone know a trick to get them apart ?
  5. I've been collecting old Meisselbach reels from the early 1900 for a number of years now an I'm trying to find parts for a few without any luck . Does anyone on the forum know of anyone that might have parts for Meisselbach reels ? Thanks for any help Jim

  18. Newbe here. I never fished for tilefish before and I plan on giving it a try this year. I live in NJ and I know of a boat the Voyager out of Pt Pleasant that fishes for them. If any pros out there can give me some pointers were to start will be a lot of help. Rods, reels, line and all else I might need to get started. Also when is the best time of year for success? Thanks Jim
  19. The reel is several years old and they haven't made the 20s in a few years now . Didn't try zebco yet maybe I should but being discontinued I didn't think they would still stock parts . Thanks anyway guys .
