The line stripper can be chucked into any power drill and be used to very quickly remove the line from a reel. Just wedge the end of the line between the two yogurt containers, turn on the drill, and remove as much line as you need to from your fishing reel. When you're done, just unscrew the wing nut. This allows you to separate the containers and the mass of line that has been wound there can than be easily removed
Step 1: Make a spindle out of steel or aluminum rod
Attach a hex nut and a flat washer, as shown in the photo. Adjust the nut so that the amount of exposed thread remaining beyond the washer is 3/8". If you have chosen to cut your own thread into the end of a solid rod, then make the length of the thread such that 3/8" is exposed beyond the washer when the nut is screwed on completely. The advantage of this second method is that you will never have to adjust or measure the amount of exposed thread once you've made the spindle.
