Does anyone have any tips for this? I have a bare workshop wall and about 20 reels lying in a pile. Who's got 20 spare reel seats that they don't need?

I had an idea about surface mounting a 20mm dia length of conduit and sliding a load of 25mm running couplings along it and jamming the reels in with those, but there's not enough room betweem the conduit and tube.

Any ideas anyone (I know - "sell off the reels you don't use" - she said that too!)???

Thats what I use, they can be tightened up for long term storage, or left slack for temporary, stop each jubilee clip sliding off, by putting a panel pin into the wood behind it;)

Why not make up four or five simple shelves on some adjustable shelf brackets with a bit of quadrant at the front and ends of each shelf to keep them on it ?
You can keep them in plastic bags with a bit of silica gel to keep them rust free etc.

Plastic cable ties should work - just leave them loose and trim the ends.

The weight of the reel should hold them in position.

Fuji Snap-locks. Mount on board on wall, or attach snap-locks to any pipework using cable ties.

Do you happen to have around 20 going spare?

:wave: My mistake, thought you might have been flush.
As you have a boat to maintain I fully understand where the money goes.
I run a boat with a 50hp engine and can only afford to drop the reels in a draw.
Like you, I would like to have something more convenient. Certainly when I spend £50 - £400 on a reel I should perhaps spend £4 on a Snap-Lock to ensure they are not scratched in storage.:)

broom handle, and cut a cycle inner tube into inch lengths. Slip each on the rounded end of the broomhandle, and there you go!

Simple, low tech and cheap - always the best answer!

Reminds me of the Yank showing off his Parker Ballpoint pen to a Russian. The Yank said smuggly, "NASA spent $4m developing a pen that would write in zero gravity". The Russian replied, " on our space missions we use pencils"!
