Good Product and Great Service
Posted November 6, 2013
I bought this cord reel and loved it. Unfortunately the electrical contact wipers inside the unit started throwing sparks and in looking at it I found that they had burned out. I spoke to Rockler about it and they sent me a whole new unit. Great service. Thanks Rockler.

I have wanted a high quality, heavy duty real for years. This one is excellent. I am one of those guys that push it and think that everything will be fine. Thank goodness I have had no trouble thus far. I decided that I should stop chancing things and get the rite tool for the job. I am very happy with this real. It is a bit of insurance for me and well worth it. I do not mind spending money on quality things that I will have the rest of my life.

You can buy less expensive extension cord reels but you can't buy one of any better quality than Rockler's. The cheaper versions have thinner 14 gauge wires instead of Rockler's heavier duty 12 gauge! the cheaper ones also have a poorly made internal mechanism that fails almost immediately so the cord won't retract. The cheaper ones must also be permanently mounted whereas Rockler's can be either mounted permanently or hung from hooks so it can be moved around you shop if necessary. I've had my Rockler reel for about a year and have used it almost every day. It hasn't failed me yet and it has handled every load I've put on it. Its superior quality makes it well worth the price tag. I've recommended it to numerous friends and will continue to do so. You won't go wrong with this purchase.
