Yes, it is a junky old real. Yes, it needs a lot of work. But this piece of equipment was inherited, and if anybody has any information where I can find parts and maintenance for it, I would really love it. Thanks for any help you can offer. Specifically it is the reverse wind stop mechanism that is broken. Thanks again.

PS who is the manufacturer of this real? I can't find anything about it on the Internet so far.

I purchased an Ocean Star No. 36 in 1968 from Harry Goode's Outdoor Shop in Melbourne (still there since 1946) when I went to work on Florida's Space Coast. It is a good reel for surf casting with heavy spoons. I was told that it was made in Japan and that the company importing them was give extra reels in lieu of spare parts. Of course, like any good business, they sold the extra reels, hence no spare parts. I haven't used mine since the 70s, but recently purchased a "like new" spare on line. My spool and bail have some corrosion, but mechanically the reel is fine.

Try looking up Alan Tani's website and giving him an email. If anyone has parts it'll be him.

Edit: oh wait it's a spinner, good luck then dude, still might be worth a shot to contact Mr. Tani.
