Was looking at Smizz' 1st attempt thread and noticed his rather nice rod wrapper in the pic too. Puts my first wrapper to shame. I started out with a cardboard box, I customized my cardboard box, but was still a cardboard box all the same . Took me a while to bother building a wrapper and even then it was pretty limited.
 
Might be helpful for those starting out and looking to make their own... so lets see em.
 
If I can find my camera I'll show you a pic of my first Wrapper a la cardboard Embarrassed

My first ws the cardboard box but only for the first rod.
I upgraded to mark two in wood and while simple was very effective and versatile.
Ran two spools of different sizes at once, used rubber bands to lock, old guides to guide thread and springs to tension.
 
The lower notches were for holding rods during drying and power wrapping when hooked up to this bad boy....
 
 
Uses laptop power source, homemade speed adjustment (notice the custom heat sink!).
Great for drying rods and lures and with a little adjustment could do tiger wraps in a jiffy.

If camera lenses are round why do the pictures come out rectangle?

I imagine a windsreen wiper motor would be good for this.
Weld a washer in to the bottom of a piece of pipe, then bolt it to the motor shaft.
Whack a 6 mm bolt thru the pipe for the but to nock in to...
you can't fix an idiot with duct tape, but it does muffle them for a while...

I use a 24V wiper motor on mine. I run it straight off a 6V battery charger and it does about 20RPM and has plenty of torque. I also keep a 6V motorbike battery around in case of a power cut. 

The adaptor is just a PVC pipe vent cover and the rubber bands do the gripping.

Alternative  but very similar suggestion.. car electric window winder motors .. and under seat adjusting motors which are already geared ... get the switches and you have forward and rev if need be....
