I made this simple line stripper to take the fishine line off my reels this year. I cut about 12" of 3/8" dowell and cut a 3" long slit on one end. Set the drag as low as you can on the reel and slip some of the line through the slit on the dowell. Run the drill as fast as it goes. Be very careful not to let the line get up by the chuck of the drill it could cause damage to the drill. When done you can pull the line off the end and bring it for recycling.
