What is so new and improved about the wire measuring machine?
Same thing is still in use at any chandlery that sells cut lengths of
I used one when working at a hardware store while in high school.
That would take up more valuable floor space, and require multiple
operations to wind, measure and cut, then remove it from the drum and
coil it back up.
That measuring machine was used with a hand cranked collapsible reel
that both pulled the wire through the machine, and coiled it. Once you
had the right length you cut it, tied the coil, the released the arms to
free the coil. I sold and used a lot of wire with those, back in the
'70s. I used some long lag eyes and screwed them into exposed studs,
then used some old stock ground rods to hold the smaller reels.
You can't have a sense of humor, if you have no sense!
