Great piece of Equipment
Posted October 5, 2014
Bought this to help clean up the shop floor and prevent accidents from extension cords running across the floor. Fits the bill perfectly. Mounted to ceiling with 20 Amp box - can reach nearly all my most used tools without difficulty. Very satisfied - we will see how well it holds up over time. So far, it is excellent.
Can't beat the features for the price

Finding a 12 gauge cord in a retracting reel is not easy. I've had this one for several years and it's great. Just bought another one for my son-in-law. Beware of the 14 gauge models sold at Sears and other places; they don't deliver the full power you need for serious woodworking tools.
Two reels mounted to my shop ceiling
Posted September 18, 2014
When I built my shop I had plenty of outlets installed at top of counter height. Since installing two reels on the ceiling I only use the wall plugs for fixed machines against the walls. Reels are heavy duty and durable, are easy to use, and are among the handiest devices in my shop. I've paid much more for tools that are not nearly as useful.
