About 2 months ago we were approached by Toowoon Bay SLSC & asked if we would take on the task of completely refurbishing a surf reel for them. It was to be used for display at their 60th anniversary, 50's style surf carnival in October 2014.
They asked that it be restored to as near to new as possible because after the event it was to be used as a heritage piece & displayed at the clubhouse. 
On one side of the reel will be the names of all the foundation members while on the other side will be the names of the first crew. 

It turned into a really interesting project for a number of our members. All the fittings were re- chromed. Robert & Mark completely dismantled the reel, restored the ends & made new cedar slats for the rope. Bob turned up the new reel biscuits to replace the originals. Justin & Greg hand polished the frame back to it's original pristine condition. 

Robert made the 2 new flagpoles they also wanted as seen in the photos below.

They all can be very proud of the finished product as seen below.

Great effort fellas
