      I bought 2 of the Walmart reels, not good in the cold and the hose could be better bu for the price they are very handy and easy to mount. I have 4 other manuals and they are fine, the blue one was HF and under 20$ but I added the ring around it.

        wow

        Hey Guys, thanks alot for the advice. It just goes to show that there really is more than one way to skin a cat.

        I think im going to make myself a reel. I actually need two. One for inside and one outside. I have to re plumb my compressor though. Right now my regulator is mobile and floats between in and out. Its a real PITA now that i think about it so Im going to plumb the reg into the line in front of all my outlets. Then my regs will be safe indoors and I can rest easy.
        I leave the rig outside and I know that if I dont change it, my units gonna go for a walk some night and get lost...

        Anybody built there own rigs?

        As for zen... nah nah nah naaaaa. noo noo noo noooooooo.....
        Will it weld? I loooove electricity!

          Dosen't home depot or some store like that sell the self coiling ones or the hose reels. If you have a shop you can create an inline air system that is a bunch of steel pipe bolted on to a wall that is hooked up to an air compresser with quick couplers atached to the steel pipes.

            thats what i have now. its direct from the pressor and the reg moves around. I have to modify this system a tad... I'll be making or finding hose reels after that. Air hose still sucks..

              I think somebody mentioned it, But HF is the cheapest I've found. We only have rubber hose, got rid of all the slinky vinyl crap.

                1/4" vs 3/8" vs 1/2"

                don't run large tools on 1/4". Impacts or drills. 1/2" for 3/4" and larger impacts. It's not the size, but the cfm's that matter. I've got four reels made by Cox Reels and I love them. One is on my service truck, along with power cord, Oxy/Act, pressure washer, and nitrogen. Love'em

                  Quality Hose

                  Use quality hose! Gates makes an oil based hose that is larger in O.D., but worth the money. I have Coil Hose brand for the retractable stuff without a reel. Same thing, use the 3/8" for air tools. Try 1/4" and there won't be any torque. The 1/4" are for air blow guns only.
