Greetings to everyone,

Back in Aug 2012 I had made an On Board Line Spooling Bracket out of a plastic paper towel dispenser. 



I had it mounted inside of my rod locker in my Stratos.  Well after a few years the bracket broke from the pounding. 

Yesterday while at Lowes I picked up a piece of flat aluminum and some self tapping screws.   After taking some measurements from the old bracket and some bending and drilling I finally came up with a new bracket.






New On Board Line Spooling Bracket mounted and ready for use

Looks great Don!

If I may make one suggestion, I'd put those corners on a grinder and round them off.

Roger that on rounding those corners off.   I didn't even think about doing that.  I'll  need to pickup a new grinder next trip to Harbor Freight or Lowes.
