This post is so far off topic, I wonder if you were "sleep posting"? :blink: 3:28 AM..... I donno? :laughing:

In his first picture he is using one of those cord reel thingies...

Him being somewhat 'new' to this - He ought to know / be told that IF he tries to pull too much power through one of things while the cord is still rolled up inside it - He CAN easily melt the cord...

All it takes is to plugin something like a small compressor and a few lights and you got a problem waiting to happen... :yes:

Those things are not quite so bad so long as you unwind ALL the cord before trying to pull a lot of power through them. When left coiled up the heat builds QUICKLY. :thumbsup:
