    Welcome, Dave!
    Hose reels are often used for oxy-acetylene rigs to store the double green-red hose. Do you have an OA rig in addition to the MIG welder, or some need to store many feet of hose?

    Dan, I do not have any pictures to show now. But when I am ready with the first project, I will upload pics.

    Sling,
    Yes, I purchased oxy-acetylene rigs a year ago on Craigslist. Now I plant to use it. I just thought that it will be safer to store the hose on special reel. The point is that I found just reels for professionals https://www.mrosupply.com/hydraulics...5-50_coxreels/ and the price is high. Nothing middle priced.
    Maybe I will do without the reels now and purchase something cheaper on Ebay.

    Got ya, just checking. Some guys go nuts buying every conceivable bit of welding gear.

    I don't have enough hose to justify a reel, myself. I coil mine and store it in a dedicated tool box. You could coil yours around the cart handle, if you use a cart.
