Here’s an easy way to carry, store, and use just the right amount of air hose. 1. drill a hole in the bottom of a 5-gallon bucket, large enough for the quick-coupler to fit through. 2. coil the hose as you store it in the bucket 3. pull as much hose as you need from the top of the bucket. When done, repeat #2 This tip can be used for cable too. If using this method for an extension cord, be sure to use the correct gauge wire for the job and leave the lid off to prevent overheating.
