Default Alumareel lead reels

After so many years of wrapping up welding leads, I decided to try reels.
I settled on Alumareels. The folks there are very friendly and helpful, and getting them shipped to the States was easy too.

They look to be very well made, and should work out fine.

I put them inside a box on my truck, and bored holes throught the wall to have the connections outside

It has been brought to my attention that I did a crappy job of winding up dirty leads on really cool reels

Here is a new picture!

Might as well put one of the truck in too.

Jeff, I ran this up again, There is nothing on their site about cost. If you don't want it public, please PM me.
