How to make a wind up hose reel? Answered

I need a wall mounted hose reel that has a handle that I can wind up.

The hard part is the gasketed slip-ring on the axle, which allows you to connect the reel to the faucet and have the water flow through to the hose. Unless you want to do the build yourself as a learning exercise, you are probably better off buying one at your local garden shop or big-box store.
