Electric Cord reel

Review Summary

This is the electric cord reel I've had in my shop since I built it back in 2001. It has worked well enough those years with out any major problems. Sometimes when it gets close to the retraction of the final few feet it gets stuck and I have to play with it to get it to completely retract. Outside of that it has worked pretty well. It's always locks into a hold position when I pull it out and the three way plugs seem to be holding up so no real complaints.
If I were to buy another one today though I'm not sure that I would be this same one again, at least not at it's current price. Seems a little high for what it is and does.I think I paid $30 for it back then.
