The beam shown comprises the cylindrical hub

A drive abutment is provided on each of the
spider frames for receiving a drive member for
rotating the beam when it is mounted on its trun
tubing or may be formed up from sheet metal
stock. Each head structure comprises a disk ll
of sheet metal, these disks being secured to the
ends of the hub by tongues 12 extending from

metal plated or may be lacquered, or otherwise
coated as by dipping thereof. In order to prevent
accumulation of plating ‘solution or metal, or

short of engagement with the disks ll so as to‘

I thus produce a beam or reel which is of light
weight relative to the load to be carried thereon
and whose head structures are amply sti?ene'd,
strengthened, and reinforced to withstand spread
ing strains to which theyvwill‘ be subjected“ The
light sheet metal parts can be readily‘v formed
integral from sheet metal stock and secured or
welded together to produce the rigid structure.

ment of the features of my invention but I do not
