D.I.Y Electric hose reel conversion for less than £50

Weird, it looks like a screw thread (left handed) but when I turn it it doesn't come off. The bolt is definitely staying still while the nut turns so can't figure it out!

Edit: strangely, I've tried the other motor and it came straight off. Definitely a screw thread. Oh well. The thread must have gone on the other. Maybe someone has tried turning it anticlockwise to remove it at some point.

Heres my effort, it works like a dream. I have only done the bottom hose reel on my stacked hose reels, to see how it came out. But after doing it im getting the parts to do the top one.

Getting there, I have the old pure freedom reel so trying to figure out how I’m going to reassemble has been a headache. 

 

Didnt think I’d need the grinder!

The same reel as mine, all i did was use spacers on the inside of the cog then drill through entire hose reel and put the bolts on the inside if that makes sense. oh and yes i used my dremal to cut down the red thing that holds the spindle in place.

As you can see mine is the older version where the red bearing housing is welded on! 

 

Nightmare but done. 

 

Will fit motor, chain and push button tomorrow!
