WTB - front hub for use to make a hose reel

Post by GRNSHRK » Wed Mar 06, 2019 9:06 pm

Hey guys,

I've still got a stack of old 14" 20-spoke wheels and thinking about making a hose reel outa one of them, I kid you not #-o

But since I want it to turn so that can easily spin it to wrap up the garden hose, I think I'll need a front hub :-k

Not sure how I'm gonna mount it or anything, guess just entertaining ideas at this point :roll:

But if anybody has one kicking around, the bearings can even be shot for the most part I guess, I'd like to hear from you [-o<

Maybe I need a pick, or should look on realoem so that I can figure out how I'm gonna mount it, or if this will work at all :-({|=

TIA :wink:

Whatcha need is a trashed strut. Than you can cut it where needed and weld it/get it welded to a plate you can bolt to a wall . Bobbo, where is all that engineering talent??

Fair point though, let's see what shakes out, based on your reply :-?

Maybe I should ping good ole boy Ralph :-k
