Line spooling station - VIDEO ADDED
« on: April 21, 2015, 02:58:13 pm »
Since I only spool my reels with braid, I needed a way to flip the line when the front starts to show signs of wear. Since I'm on vacation and the wind is keeping me off the water for a few days, I decided to make my own line spooling station.

I needed to design it so I could take the line off the reel onto a spool and then get it onto another spool so when I put back to the reel, the line will now reversed.

Here is what I came up with; I use a cordless drill to spin the spools. If I wrap the line around the eyelet a couple times it creates a tension as I'm putting the line back on the reel.

I managed to get a few new reels spooled and flipped the line on a few others in a short period of time.

Guess that beats doing it by hand in front of the TV.
It takes a while to hand wind 300 yards of line onto a spool, I know . 
Handy stuff MTM .  :)
