    I have lost my czech reel, and my old FAI winches are tired. Can anyone point me to a new source? Thanks, Dave.

    The Czech Ikara towline winch can be ordered here or at FAI Model Supply in Sayre, PA – you will also need the 1/4″ spacer .

    Thermals, Peter

    Jim Bradley imports reels from Israel which I have used for years. Imagine the FAI winch with two planetary gears.
    The FAI winch has only one gear, which I feel was part of its drawback.
    Contact Jim at:
    Jim gives a lifetime warranty on replacement parts and usually has the bits on hand.

    Thanks, Peter. Thanks, Lee.
