    I wanted to strip some line of my old reels and put is back on the spool it came with so I could use it for a leader. I got a drill, a screwdriver, and a grinding wheel. What I did was grind the handle of the screw driver so that it could fit in the hole of the spool. Then I put it in so that it was nice and snug, then connected it to the drill, and there you go a line stripper. I used my fingers to guide the line onto the spool. I will post some pics soon.

    A long bolt and two nuts and two washers work really well also. Put a nut and washer on the bolt then put on the spool then the other washer and nut. Put the end of the bolt in the drill and there you have it.

    I've used a drill to strip line before. It sure beats pulling it off by hand or buying a line stripper.

    I use the bolt and nuts method which works good and it also works when spooling your reel by putting the bolt in a vice instead of a drill, you can tighten the nuts down to get as much tension as you want when loading the line onto your reel.
