Default Winch spool

Hi Guys,
I'm kind of new to this forum and thought I would start out by asking a question.

What I am looking for is some idea of how to make a spool for a servo winch. Modifying a servo to become a winch is no problem, but I'm looking for a decent way to hold the winch line. I have tried (with some success) using a round servo horn and a long 3mm screw - maybe 20mm - and a bit of tubing for a spacer and then a flat washer to from the other end of the spool. This is okay, but I'm wondering about other options.

Thanks,
Al
