- Good drying breeze(boring washing line replacement content)
Edit: post crossover. Sure there’s nothing to connect the retractable line to ? I attached a short piece of cable to a tree and put a clip on the end of that. The retractable line then hooks onto the clip.
Nothing on the oil tank you could attach a short line of cable to and do the same ?Posted 3 years ago
So while i was out at scolty on the bike the wind and the bed sheets destroyed our hills rotary yesterday…….
What the hell do you replace it with. Wont be another hills – previous owner left this one but i since looked them up and they are 199 quid…….ps its not just the cables , the arms have splayed badly – it should be square its now rectangular.
Anything decent availible for less money ? I had a squint about and realised i know absolutely nowt. All i know is its in a very exposed location so probably wants to be fairly robust.Posted 3 years ago
I might do as a last resort but im not keen on the idea.
That is my prefered option how ever ive been told its time for a new one……. This isnt the first time its broke- i blame operator error….although tis time is a little more catestrophic than last time , it looks really sad im the back garden now 🙂Posted 3 years ago
Cheers bruneep- guess thats J’s birthday sorted…..that and an ironing board 😉
I know there are lots out there but i live on top of a hill and take the brunt of northerlys traveling over about 25 miles of open space before the nearest trees. I suspect a cheapo one would be in bits in weeks as oppose to years. – id seen brabantias but asfaik they make bins…..their washing lines could be as good as audis mountain bike……Posted 3 years agokcalSubscriber
went for the post crete and ‘proper’ poles option – and some strong line – steel pegs always worth while too..
Never really took to rotary dryers myself, far better to get a straight line and let the wind take its course, nought better than seeing the sheets and towels out like a galleon in full sail until they end up in neighbours’ garden of course 🙂Posted 3 years ago
I did open it – and i thought it was an abomination. Coupled with the only place it could go on the back of my house that isnt infront of a window is over the oil boiler…..mmm oily clothes.
Just been out bodging the old one – on closer inspection its the rivets that have failed , the nylons only a stressed member on one side once that happens so it folded back with the sail effect of the sheets.
Some m6 bolts,washers and nyloc nuts ,a 5 mm drilll bit , a quick clamp and we are back in business……. Should be stronger than new now.Posted 3 years ago
