This lacks the asthetics of Ray's design, but a couple of years ago on the west coast at a fishing show I saw a exhibitor selling what I can best describe as 2 plastic salad bowls bolted together at their base by a buffing wheel arbor. The idea was to remove the line using this spool in a cordless drill and then take the spool apart. I've never found the right bowl to do this though. I can say that a spool from a Stren reel fill pack fits nicely on a 1/2 " buffer arbor and can strip a reel quickly.
