Uncoiled for pex and electric

josephny Member Posts: 105

Anyone have any experience or thoughts on getting a pex uncoiler/reel for use with pex as well as with electric wire?

would be nice to put it to multi-use.

    I had a 4' diameter aluminum disc I could slip over my uncoiler, so it could take a small roll of 3/8 up to a 600' 1". The inner part was about an 8" diameter, so anything with that size inner diameter would work.
    good to have a friction adjustment also to keep it from flywheeling. Mine was one of the early Rehau versions, on wheels.

    Pretty easy to make custom uncoilers, a lazy susan hardware kit makes for a good start for a small size uncoiler.

    Thanks for the suggestions guys.  

    I can do the diy — it’ll go on my to-do list.

    I like the idea. I think he over engineered it, but it's something I haven't thought of.

    Another great suggestion from @EdTheHeaterMan

    Probably could find an old spool and not have to do half that
