Notes

It is hard to believe that there were so many reel makers here in the Northwest. Some of these patent holders received their patents in the 1890s or early 1900s.

We need your help. If you have any reels or  information about any of the makers shown here, or any that are not included, please email: Phil White

I will be posting photographs of many of these reels as time allows. The underlined blue names are on line at this time.
