Rolling Fenders Make Nifty Hose Reel
The fender discs were originally 4 in. apart and connected at the center by a bolt. He welded a short length of pipe onto the bolt to lengthen it by 1 in. Then he attached a length of redi rod to the bracket that originally held the discs to the cultivator and bolted it to the shop wall. He welded a nut onto another short length of 3/8-in. dia. redi rod to make a crank.
"To unroll the hose we just drag the hose out. To roll the hose up, we turn the crank. A good commercial reel sells for about $100 so I saved a lot of money," says McCrea.
