    I have that reel too. Been about 10 years and still works fine. I did have to re Teflon tape it maybe 6 years to stop a leak at the rotary valve but that's it
    thanks fellas...that's a good idea...i hate having to roll it up after when it's cold...it's like a cold garden hose...my garage is 2 bays...the compressor is stored at the back of the right bay...it has a horizontal tank, a handle and wheels and i will typically roll it around to where i need it...the outlet for it is on the right side of the right bay (only 240 outlet in the garage, old style with 1 horizontal prong 1 vertical prong and the ground)...i'd probably mount a reel in the center at the back of the garage and put my long hose on that...then just get a 25' hose like Jim said...i can disconnect the 25' hose and use it other places if needed...i have a similar reel mounted there now for my extension cords

    Re: Harbor Freight tools that DON'T suck

    Anyone have experience with the US general brand of rolling tool boxes? I had ordered a big Milwaukee cart but I saw one today and I wasn't impressed what I was buying for the money. I looked at the usual suspect but I found them all lacking except for the harbor freight ones. They seemed better built and with a better layout than anything else I could find. I would like them to be able to handle a few decades of use. My old craftsman stacker is close to 40 years old and my husky stacker is pushing 20. I would keep them too but they are too small and dealing with two rolling stacked boxes is a pain in the balls.

    I made a thread on rolling tool boxes: Rolling Tool Chest

    my take away is the US General boxes are very well built and will last under heavy abuse. I went with Husky however for my basic homeowner use for its lower price point and convenience features like slow-close drawers.

    I had that reel in my old garage. Compressor was mounted in the loft and piped to the reel in-between the garage doors then I put in a few other connections around the garage. Fun project and worked great.
