Art & Inspiration Have you used a old wire wheel, mag or rim for a outdoor water hose hanger??

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by HOTRODPRIMER, Oct 28, 2019.

  1. My idea of mounting it on a hub/spindle was to mount on a metal post instead of mounting it directly to the wall, and also the thought of beng able to roll the hose up.

    Just thinking out side the box. HRP

    This isn't exactly the example you asked about but I have a Vega Rim and I think a metric? wheel (can't remember where it came from) to hang air hose on, I had two of the Vega rims (wheels:) but gave one to a widow I was dating 15 years ago to hang her (water) hose on. Not fancy but cheap. I added a box to the inside of the metric wheel to hold air hose paraphernalia. At least I can find it. IMG_2562.JPG IMG_2563.JPG
  3. Both of those are good ideas. HRP

    I think the idea is great!

    So far everyone's wheel is mounted way too low IMHO.

    I hauled around a set of American 5 spokes for 20 years only to find one was actually a hose reel in disguise. didn't find this out until I had the tires mounted.:(

    Here, s my three, doing their duty. Way over due for a repaint from being out in the weather here in wet Tasmania. Ashleys various Nov 19 015.JPG Ashleys various Nov 19 014.JPG They used to have nice 35 caps on them but I removed them when I went on holiday in case some one liked more than me!

    I've had a Model T Ford driveshaft welded to a 30-31 Ford wire wheel in the ground with a bag of cement for a mailbox post for 41 years. Bob

    I’ve always planned on using this one. Just haven’t got around to it. I don’t think it would get stolen! 103D0A50-2AA5-4DF8-B98A-90A2F48D7D61.jpeg

    Picked up 3 '34 wires about 35 years ago. What can you do with 3? Makes a real nice hose reel.

  18. This one is slightly upscale, but it does the job. HRP

  19. I bought a cracked 15X8 ET slotted wheel to make a hose reel years ago. Paid 10 bucks at a swap meet, but it's still sitting on the shelf in the storage shed.

    I'm too lazy to make one, too lazy to hang my hose up. It just sits in a pile in the yard. I really need to get off my butt and do more around here, lol....

    IMG_3837.JPG I used a male /female hydraulic connectors for the spinning part on a hose reel I made several years ago . Haven't had any issues with it. I would think that they would work for water also.
