Cord Reel

Friday - I disassembled the cord reel to see how badly the contacts were burned. The neutral contact, the one on the left, was pretty burned. With roughly ¼” of material missing from each end of the contact. What I might do is swap the neutral contact with one of the others and bend the contact to match. 

Even after cleaning, the contacts are still badly pitted. I then disassembled the cylinder and rearranged the contacts so the neutral is “best” as it carries all of the current. 

Now I just need to reassemble the whole thing. And test it. The problem with testing is that I need to wire it in and I had cut off the connectors…
