OK guys... I know some of you have figured this out... help me....
I work for a industrial piping contractor doing commercial/industrial piping and maintenance... lots of our work is outage work in steel mills, plants etc. We tool up and trailer everything we can imagine using to the site nice and neat... but when it returns to the shop it's one tangled nasty mess all thrown in the trailers. wet...dry...greasy...broken...smashed.
One of the jobs I hate is untangling and rerolling welding leads... sometimes hundreds of feet of heavy 2/0 to 4/0 welding leads that are kinked, twisted and heavy. Mostly we roll up as best we can and lay it on pallets... but it wastes a lot of space...
I'm looking to make a welding lead roller where you can stick one end of the lead on the spool, wind it up neatly in a compact package, tape or cable tie it together and the REMOVE it from the roller for storage... preferably like a roll of garden hose at the home depot
I know they sell them and they are expensive... this needs to be a shop fabbed project to save money. Doesn't have to be powered...can be manually turned... fairlead would be nice but not absolutely necessary...
so ?? who's got pictures/plans/ideas
