John Devitt would have been the man but he is now retired. He might be worth ringing however to see if he still has any parts. Have a look for his number/ad in the back of oldish (18months +)Wangler magazines.

oldy but a goody!

I've got a few of the old versions/keepers/collectable and due to the older age/change over of manufacturer the parts are like hens teeth. I'm sure some one maybe able to help but I've got an account with Mitchell but no parts available, the last guy I knew that had some/few was 10 years ago!

Drag washers

Mon, 2007-07-02 09:52

The two I have were made in purchased in 75 and I have had no trouble with them but like to keep them maintained.
They have Teflon drag washers that need to be replaced but whats the
best stuff to use to make the washers up?

HT100 (teflon), just a matter of making sure the material is thick enough as the original washers are thicker than normal I think!
