I have been looking for a spool for a while but have had no luck. That’s why I posted this thread. I need the spool for trials.
I don’t know if it’s called a spool. They’re the gigantic wooden spools that people transport electric wires in.
I need any and all of the information about getting one. I would really love it if you guys could give me a list of which companies you think should have them. I would also like to know where you guys got yours. If theres any other information i should know please post and tell me.
I’ve had luck finding various sized ones at:
-local dump (as a bonus, it was free!)
-side of the road (they had just set new cable and there were three of them left on the street corner for @ 3 days, so I figured they wouldn’t miss one)
-Salvation Army thrift store (people use them for tables, I guess)
-“Someone I know” went to the Cox cable building after hours and. . .ahem. . .liberated one from their parking lot (not recommended)
Spools are used to hold cable. Find companies that use lots of cable. Ask around at their service yard.
- Your local power company (such as PG&E)
- Your local cable TV distributor (such as Cox or Comcast)
- Your local phone company (such as AT&T)
