Retractable reel! Now we are talking!
Festool should have done it in their hub. What they sell now is a 10x oversized power strip that only wastes space.

Looks like you put a lot of work into that nice compact package.  What AWG did you use and what is the reel rated for?

That looks good.  [big grin]

When I converted the 220 Sys Power Hub to 110 outlets, I debated about putting an automatic cord reel inside. I decided against it because eliminating the reel would allow me to fit a charger for my iPhone, a charger for the CXS and 40 feet of 14 ga wire on the inside. It also allowed room for carrying extra items such as a soldering iron and soldering supplies.  [smile]
