I can identify with such plights.  Thus, any wire has to be re-spooled on something a bit more manageable in size and, most importantly, NOT under production speed tension.  I have used the rubber "keeper" ring as shown below, but it's not really necessary if the tension is kept reasonably low on re-spooling.  On the big spools, the line keeper both is plenty and even when the wire is freed there is no danger of springing.  

You think regular sized flytying wire sucks for bird's nesting?  Try gold 32 gauge hobby wire, this stuff is absolutely insane when it gets loose from little spools.  I use the 32 for dubbing brushes and learned my lesson about not transferring it to something other than what it came on.  Nylon toilet seat bolt and a keyless chuck drill makes it a cinch.

Don’t you just hate that. I think we all have one spool of wire that looks like that.

I have more than one.

 

I am going to order some thread spool holders.  Thanks
