For photo kite flying is a good cable reel indispensable.

Luckily I'm pretty handy and do sometimes what to metalworking, moreover, I can weld and so I made a reel tool to design and construct (2005). The drum machine consists of a detachable tripod with associated ground anchor and straps. On this tripod a reel holder is mounted. The entire device is put with 3 locking pins together. The different reels with various types of cable can be easily changed.

The reel holder has an advanced braking device in 2007 to the reel during the unreeling and to slow down and block. Allows the reel machine has become an advanced and sophisticated equipment.

Here I am a brake disc for a reel tool to milling.

Regularly asked me the question, "Can you not build something for me?".

But unfortunately people, I have simply no time for it. In the evening I am always busy with crafts, music and create many hours I spend on my computer (s).

Time to look at the TV, I did not, I look sometimes only one time the news !.

For the rest interests me that TV still nothing from me should that thing right out the door. (Only my wife does not agree with that !!)

The most beautiful button on the TV, I think is the OFF button.

The reels are made of circular discs made of Trespa, a hard material that is waterproof. It is known in the construction industry as siding. It is expensive stuff, but then you have some !. The discs are mounted with bolts and spacers. The handle is mounted for smooth operation.

You see that I wear heavy gloves, and that is certainly not a luxury. This kite line, I have wounded me in a while and I want so a second time to experience more.

Meanwhile I built a lightweight reel machine. Once I have pictures there, I put them on this page.
