Yes, not a huge amount but they're great old reels. USA-made, worm gear driven, leather drag washers, etc. A much heavier duty reel, basically bulletproof, compared to, say, a comparably sized Garcia 300. I used a 2062 steelhead fishing all last year. You can find lots of information about them online.
It's an awesome reel and the worm gear gives it a unique line lay that makes it a better caster than other reels that stack the line on the spool. You'll want to oil the leather drag washers, they are prone to becoming brittle and flaking.
Ome is a 2062 and the other is a 2052. What would you charge to service them?
$25 each, assuming nothing is broken and I have to hunt down parts. I'll also measure the drag washers and see if I can find some Carbontex that fit.
Ok. They both seem to work just feel a little stiff/ tight.
They'll just need a cleaning and lube. Those old spinners are all bushings on the inside and the grease can turn to a wax like consistency stiffening them up. A good cleaning will wake them right up.
I'm surprised you don't make the washers yourself.
I used to, to a point. Back before Carbontex washers were made for everything, I would get Penn HT100 washers and cut them to size.
