I had 151m of CAT6 cable left on a old reel, but the reel itself had broken. Luckily the cable was still formed in a coil shape.
I managed to carefully unroll it by attaching one end to the street light pole
outside our house and walking down to the corner of the neighbours with it.
I did this 3 times to get 3 pieces of approx 50m length each.
My neighbour did come out to ask what I was doing !
I had to untwist some of the excess curls from it.
So, 20 minutes later I have 3 nice rolls of CAT6 cable.
Cable saved to be used another day 🙂
