The poor little 100LL grounding cable. That thing has been through so much. Somebody just letting it go – trying to make it’s way back to the spool and getting tangled up in the axle. In the process getting kinked up and not able to be untangled without having to cut the cable. There must be someone with a vendetta against it. I mean, what did it ever do to anyone?
I could say Larry the cable guy but probably not. I’ve seen many of these wind up this way. (No pun intended). I’ll guess a hand crank reel would survive better. Might just add one as a test. ( YEP – This looks like WordPress)
