To garden hose lasts longer, it must be stored correctly. It is desirable to have the coil. It will allow for the uselessness of his wind up without creases and twists in order to place under the canopy where it will get sunlight. To make such a coil is scrap, particularly old parts from the car.
- any pipe, preferably thinner;
- wheel hub;
- lengthening nut M10;
- stud M10;
- piece of wood under the handle.
The manufacturing process of coil
Of the available pipes must be welded frame with a sole on which is secured the hub and installed the wheel disk. The latter will serve as a reel for winding a hose. The frame is welded at an arbitrary size, starting from the available disk.
To the rack welded to the hub, which accepts the disc. You must then cook to the frame vertical tube with handle, to be able to carry the coil. To increase stability you can extend the sole, privaris her one of a horizontal tube.
Next, you need to prepare the disk. Welded it to the nut of the extension, which will allow you to attach the handle to rotate the drum.
In front of the nut on the opposite side of the disc to the side of the welded bracket. It will hook onto the end of a garden hose for easy application. As staples may be used bent strip or something similar from available scrap metal.
Then you need to make the handle for rotating the spool. The easiest way to use the handle from a broken grinder. If not, then you need to carve a comfortable handle made of wood, drill it in the middle and spread on the pin. Then the pin is screwed into the extension nut on the disk.
All the details it is advisable to paint it. Given the durability of the materials used, such a coil will last decades, so it makes sense to make it beautiful. Then the disc is mounted on the hub and it screwed the handle.
Then the bracket is put the hose connector. After hooking it evenly winded. It is important to do this not vnatyazhku not to deform the wall of the hose, as during prolonged storage that can crack on the line of the crease, if made from insufficiently elastic material. The resulting coil will be able to experience dozens of hoses and nothing happens. It is heavy enough not to tip over when unwinding.
