I don’t mind breaking down and maintaining my Penn reels but I’m not as familiar with Shimanos. It’s really difficult to find someone in the Fresno area also.
Who does maintenance on Shimano reels (Tld 5, 30, Tld 50, Trinidad 40)?

I also have a Sabre rod that needs the reel seat replaced. I think I want to keep it as original as possible even though I realize it will probably cost more than it’s worth. I just have a thing for old time equipment. Who in your area would take on this type of project?

Thanks for your help!

Is the reel seat just loose?I have saved them by using a pop rivet on the underside of it to hold it in place.Tom

The reel seat and screw nut are cracked.

If you can do penns you can do the TLD's. Super easy. Check the tutorials on Alan Tani, pretty much all the same inside. Smoothdrag has bearings, drag washers, grease and that fun stuff.
Trinidad's are more fidigity, might want to send those out if you're not confident. There's a little tiny springs that shoots into orbit when you take the drag star off for openers.
