I like the yellow/black spool better than the plastic one, but I want the green hybrid hose!I have the yellow one although mine is all black. It's all steel construction and I mounted it in the middle of my garage ceiling along side a cord reel. I ran air hose from the compressor to it and it's been up there for 10yrs or so. FIL bought one of those plastic ones from Atwoods and the retract mechanism broke within a year.
I was starting to think the same thing as I was typing out my last post. Mine just has standard 1/4-18 NPT male threads on both ends.Doug, see if the ends of your green hybrid are the same as the hose on the reel, if so it may be able to work on the spool. If there is a difference in thickness of the hose though it may not work!
Any 3/8" hose should work. My ends are 1/4" NPT. I planned on putting a quality hose on my reel when this one dies. I've cut a few inches off it as it cracked.I was starting to think the same thing as I was typing out my last post. Mine just has standard 1/4-18 NPT male threads on both ends.
I'm picky about the green hoses because they are just so good. They are really lightweight, very flexible in all temps, they don't stiffen over time, and they have no memory whatsoever.
But I really want a retractable reel too!
I'm gonna find a way to have my cake and eat it too!
Now you got me thinking. Maybe I'll buy the reel and swap the hoses. Future project.Any 3/8" hose should work. My ends are 1/4" NPT. I planned on putting a quality hose on my reel when this one dies. I've cut a few inches off it as it cracked.
I'll reiterate: I love my hose reel. I always had hoses on the floor and no more. So nice. That's a shop purchse you'll smile at every time you need to use an air hose.Now you got me thinking. Maybe I'll buy the reel and swap the hoses. Future project.
I got the seat back into the truck today. It's a night and day difference. It is so much more comfortable. I sit about an inch higher, my back doesnt feel sore after driving and I don't slide towards the door the whole ride. I love it. I also ordered a few different power steering hoses online so I can hook up the Saginaw pump.

I installed the boot scraper on the back porch. Seems to be decent quality. Ran my **** kickers through it a couple times and no bristles fell out.

Go ahead, make fun of the beer. It's hard to find beer right now, no one has my usual Yuengling.
The hose reel will be added to the agenda.I'll reiterate: I love my hose reel. I always had hoses on the floor and no more. So nice. That's a shop purchse you'll smile at every time you need to use an air hose.
Awesome on the seat. On the boot scraper: What are **** kickers? Are they something like chit kickers? 😈
WRT the beer: If I were a new brewer I'd bash you for it. After brewing for 12 years I'll say there is a beer for every occasion and I've brewed light beer and enjoyed it in the summer months.
If you want a really tasty gateway beer that's not crazy then pick up some Founder's Gold. That's my favorite light summer chugger. Not a fan of that Japanese beer Ying Ling. (JK--I actually toured the Tampa brewery)
ETA: I fixed a paint can today that was sputtering and quit. Pulled the tip off and filled it with thinner. Then pushed the stem down with needle nose pliers. Paint like cheese whiz came out then stopped. I used a torch tip cleaner to clean out the stem then pushed down on it again and got paint. Filled it up with thinner and put the tip back on. Paint sprayed out like normal and I saved a full paint can.
They went just a little longer, few dogs splittin. Burger in the belly. Good stuff.Looking good, just the right amount of char on them!!!!
Dang straight. Nothing like it. I grill all winter too. Light my coal with a propane weed burner.I can smell those burgers from here. 🍔 We use the grill all winter. Although I have to shovel snow off the deck to get to the grill, it's worth it. Burgers, steaks and chops just aren't the same in the oven.
