Pics of an ugly stripper
Mar 7th, 2009 at 9:22am
 
You've got a dirty mind... Grin

Spring has sprung, time to change out all that old line.
I needed to make a new stripper as the old one had disappeared during the build of the Grass Slipper.
Easy to make, easy to use.



Get a 16 ounce plastic bottle, one with a straight section
in the middle between the two bulges at the top and bottom.
Clean it out, and drill a hole through the center of the cap.
The hole will need to fit a 2 inch long 10/24 machine screw.
Spin a nut and washer up to lock the screw to the cap.

...


Then cut the bottle in half at the middle of the straight section.

...


Then cut a slit from the beginning of the bulge to the newly cut edge.

...


Then do the same with the other half of the bottle.

...


The slits cut in the straight section allow the bottom half
to fit inside the top half, and is stopped by the bulge.

...


With the cap on the bottle, insert in a drill and snug the chuck.

...


The end of the line from the fishing reel slips into the slit and is held there
by the tight fit between the 2 halves of the bottle.

...


Remember to open the bail or put the reel in freespool,
and start the drill spinning slowly. The line wraps around the bottle,
keep it in the flat section between the bulges. Increase speed, and watch
for bare spool starting to show. Decrease speed to finish removing
the last few feet of line. Cut the end of the line from the reel.

...


Pull the bottle apart.

...


Slip the coiled line off the stripper and use a tag end to tie it up.
Ready to take to the recycle bin at the local bait and tackle shop.

...

Redneck Tech at it's finest.  Cool

I told you it was an ugly stripper... Wink

That's genius...I can't believe I never thought of something like that before.  I've always wanted something to strip the line off faster.

I have one of those without the fancy cutting. Mine must be the basic model. It's an old bottle with a bolt through the cap. Been using it for a couple of years.

Free is good. Wink

Yep it's tippy. It's a canoe, not a lounge chair.

Ah yes, the Mark I Standard. Reliable, durable, many still in use.
Had problems with an off center rotation as I recall, and sometimes
was difficult to remove the wrapped line. The Mark V Divided, was
designed for todays need for speed. With the added benefit of the
line end compression retention system, allows for quicker removal
of the newer super-braids. Still, it's nice to hear the Mark I endures.

The Mark I is actually faster because it is virtually impossible to remove the line. The diameter just gets larger and larger.

I'd heard that was occurring. Due to personal injury claims filed against
the manufacturer, from the continued use of said Mark I, long after the
working diameter and load exceeded the human anatomy's structural design
parameters, mechanical engineers developed the Mark V Divided to solve
that minor flaw with what is called the "cliff effect". Get too close to
the edge of structural failure, and the end falls off.

My last line stripper was a counter rotating Evinrude 250. This will save me a trip to the inlet, thanks! Smiley

Could you also, when finished, pull out the lower half of the bottle, leaving the line on the top half, then cut through the line and the bottle to aid in disposal without endangering any birdies or manatees?

When I said "disposal" I did NOT mean the trash bin.  I thought I could just put it in a baggie and put it in the recycle bin.  And I am an avid (my wife uses a different term) recycler.  From now on I'll put the baggie on the boat and put it in one of those PVC thingies at the launch.  But if your area does not have recycling available, at least cut it as I suggested.

Avid...rabid...what's a few consonants amongst friends... Wink

You're right Kemo, bins aren't everywhere,
and cutting the coils will render the line safer for wildlife.

Thanks, buddy.  You know, with your wit and intardnet-search-ability, I would not want to have you knock on my door (laptop, sattelite connected, in hand) and announce that you were the Spanish Inquisition.
