Air Hose Real

Now that I finished the air compressor I wasn’t really sure what to do with this air hose, it’s very hefty (more than I need for sure) but I’d hate to just throw it out because it was too bulky and in the way. Then I stumbled across this bright orange extension cord wheel that I bought to manage my extension cord, but it really really sucks for extention cords, total waste of money for that purpose.

Since the male/female connection on the air compressor can rotate as the wheel spins I thought this would work out great, just needed to drill a hole to fit the hose through and bam air hose spindle.

Maybe at some point I’ll actually get some wood working done :P

What a neat idea!

Mind if I steal it?

I have one of the cheap HF 25 foot spring loaded ones mounted in the center of the ceiling of my shop, us it all the time, the hose will reach all around my main work table to use my brad and pin nailers.

Great idea. I have been mulling over a reel installation under the handle on the compressor. Right now my hose just is looped over the handle and twists up every time I want to use it.

Have your say...
