Now is the time to either service your own reels or have them serviced. With the loss of Ollie Daimon's there is a need for "local" reel repair and service people. I think Fishonjon in Salem is still doing it and there is a new reel repair shop in Bay City but it will take more than a few of us to do what OD has done for decades. I will PM contact info for the shop in Bay City if asked.


If you repair reels for fun or for $ post here but no contact info if we want to keep this thread from going away.

Thank you.


If this thread is perceived to be soliciting work it will go away. What I would like to see is a list of people that can/will take up from where OD left off. I have done reel repair for decades but will miss the "competition", especially dealing with Doug.

Look for the big store in Delta Park, Or City and Tigard to have a reel repair service soon. Rumor has it that they hired most of Ollies employees.

I learned how to do reel repair/service by using Alan Tani's tutorials. He will be at the Saltwater Sportsman Show Feb 23-24.

Del Reel Repair between Corvallis and Philomath. Great guy to sit and chat with. Fishes the Alsea for a month in the fall and is willing to give reports. He has reels and rods that are for sale at a very cheap price plus other useful fishing equipment.

Hi Keta,
Do you service/repair electric reels?
I do a bunch of service repair work on my own reels but haven't had the ka-honies to tear into those bad boys:)

Assuming you have tanacoms like a lot of folks, google Tanacom 750 Cleaning on bloody decks. I think Alan Tani’s site has a tutorial too.

Drag washers are available from smoothdrag for the.

Really not much to them. The case with the power lever is a little tight to slide over the gear shaft but once you do it, you’ll see that it won’t damage it doing it.

Thanks for the tip Pew....
I have 2 Kagien 1000 and 1 Tanacom 750
I can’t imagine they would be much different from each other.
Other than the size:flag2:

I would suggest sending e reels to the manufacture or a service center that does them.

I’ve been maintaining and repairing my own reels since I was a kid. I have recently realized how hard it is to find anyone around that repairs reels especially in the Umpqua Valley. I’ve started doing more in the last few months, I wouldn’t mind having a few more to do if anyone is looking for a repair, service or tuning.

In the same vein. I've done mine but finding parts for my FinNors is difficult. Difficult enough I have one Marquesa busted down stored in a ziplock bag. Gave up looking for the part. It's been long enough that I've actually forgot what I need. Winter project I guess.

I’ve had both apart and their not the same, but if you can do one you should be able to do the other. I’ve done over a 100 of the Tanacom’s over the years.
