What about a used furler from Fleabay? But if you have access to a lathe, that may be the way to go.

Forget plastic, steel is your best bet. At this point, you're looking at a small trailer or tractor wheel from Harbor Freight or Northern Tool.

Just cut off the tire.

Maybe something like that's used in air coolers or washing machines?

Metal Garden hose reel idea: something like this http://www.northerntool.com/shop/too...0138_200640138
But the problem with stuff like that is they aint made for daily HD usage you have in mind.

Look around the shop. Have an old LR steel wheel? Wheel hub? Welding gear? Build!

This would be ideal it's just cost prohibitive

I figured this is the way to go to prototype it, once I figure out the mechanics I can invest

I have worked with Hannay Reels in NY state--they have a lot of reels for many different applications. They may have technical drawings to give you some ideas for winding/rewinding mechanism -- http://www.hannay.com

Have you looked at anything like a front rim from a lawn tractor?
