    Re: Braid spooler

    That all looks really cool to me. I have factory made stuff I use and that looks very inventive to me. I am kind of cramped for space, half the garage is my fishing stuff, the other is my wife's domain, knitting/yarn, planting/canning stuff, and food storage ( a little bit of Christmas Stuff too )...........Jetspray

    Thanks guys
    I've been going reel to reel, takes forever and didn't seem to lay evenly on the spool.

    Today I built a "despooler" that will Chuck up in my drill motor

    Beats the hell out of and is way more efficient than what I do. I usually put mine into a closed drawer with some sort of clothing on it to protect the line and keep the spool in place from flying all over the place.

    Tomorrow I'll procure a wing nut, bend a 90* in it and be done with it.

    Braid spooler

    Bored to tears today, waiting for another rod building shipment so I decided to build a braid spooling device that would allow me to get some pressure and spool braid properly.

    1- 24" 1/2" threaded rod
    2- corresponding nuts
    4 -2" washers
    2- 2" rubber washers
    Cheapest valve springs at my local auto parts store

    Cost about $20, can make about 20 pounds of pressure before the spools crack. I think with larger washers I could get more poundage, but don't need it
