Holds Spool winding in place while installing fishing line.


The idea is that you thread the spool, with the spool threading holes facing up, wrap 5 times counter clockwise at the base and 5 times clockwise at the end of the spool. The spool is now appropriately wound for the roller to be in the middle of travel. (3.8 seems to be the travel each way)

Then you slide the clamp on over the wound spool keeping the winds in place.

Next you put the roller in the middle of its travel (approx 9.5" from bottom of end stop bracket) and put a ziptie under the roller around the beam to keep it from moving, you then go about figuring the correct length and tying your knots, I recommend surgeon knots.

When you are done attaching the line to the roller, you tension and then remove the clamp. Move the roller up and down a few times, then re-tension.

Not sure why you print this standing up, I reprinted with it on its side and it is a lot sturdier. The one printed standing up snapped at the top almost instantly. Otherwise it is a brilliant idea :)

It is meant to be printed on it's side :D The CAD program I use exports STL in a way I am not fully used to. I should correct these in netfabb ... but I am a little lazy.

 I can send you the rotated stl if you like :) I rotated it in netfabb.

Finally got around to uploading a rotated version .. only took a couple of weeks :D
