TAKE A LOOK AT THESE NEW IDEAS FOR YOUR HOME AND FAMILY · BY PETER DRYDEN AUTOMATIC TENNIS PARTNER: For practice sessions at home or on the court, a new machine holds up to 80 tennis balls and can deliver one for your return every 3'/2, 7 or 14 seconds. It can offer you services and smashes at speeds of 85 mph and provide six minutes of hard play, 12 of rallies or 18 of easy lob returns. Ifs portable, weighs 27 Ibs. With an optional random oscillator sweep'attach- ment, it will provide full- court coverage. Details: O. /. Barnett, Dept. PP, Box 783, Upper Montdair, N. /. 07043. BOAT REEL: To eliminate the clutter that a loose mooring line can create, a new "boat rein" neatly stores 20' of 1250-lb. test, V*" braided nylon rope on a spring- loaded reel under the deck or gunwale. Requiring only the drilling of a Vz" hole, it can be installed in five minutes. When not in use, the only visible part is the chromed wingnut-type handle and ring at the end of the rope. A pull on the ring draws out as much rope as needed; then, a twist of the handle locks the rope, preventing it from rewinding onto the concealed reel. $19.95 in stores. Ingenious Devices Inc., Dept.
