THIS LISTING IS FOR THE POWER BASE FOR THE FIBER ARTIST SUPPLY COMPANY JUMBO YARN WINDER. YOU WILL NEED A WOODEN BRACKET STYLE JUMBO YARN BALL WINDER FROM THE FIBER ARTIST SUPPLY COMPANY TO USE THIS UNIT. IT MAY NOT WORK WITH OTHER YARN BALL WINDER BRANDS.
The Jumbo Yarn Ball Winder Power Base is a logical extension to our popular jumbo yarn winder. This listing is for the POWER BASE ONLY. Please note that the photo containing the jumbo ball winder is for reference only, and you will only receive the power base and accessories if you purchase this listing.
Simplicity & the ability to retrofit our existing winder were driving forces behind this design project. Speed is adjustable, direction is not. The small brushed DC motor we selected has performed very well. As I write this, I have over 500 hours on my original tested unit and the brushes show very little wear. A few thousand hours of service is a reasonable expectation of life. When customers begin to reach that threshold and are in need of replacement parts, we will offer them with video explanations detailing how to service the unit.
The power supply/speed control is a separate unit containing a speed control knob and LED readout that produces a number that is roughly correlated with the speed of the winder. The speed control being a separate unit allows the user to position the speed control anywhere that feels comfortable. High-quality rubber feet keep the power base and speed control in place while winding.
