Standard Maple Yarn Power Ball Winder
This is truly an amazing yarn winding solution.
Our standard sized motor winder offers many of the same high quality components of that our popular jumbo winder offers, but without the ability to operate the unit manually or make jumbo cakes. It's a simple plug & play operation and runs off of 100-240v wall power. This winder can handle most commercially available skeins.
About the belts: Urethane belting is a commonly used cheap power transmission method for this industry. These belts are designed to last about 10 years. We also sell replacement belts.
Simplicity was the driving force behind this design project. Speed is adjustable, direction is not. The small brushed DC motor we selected performs 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 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. Also included is a foot switch/pedal. The foot switch simply plugs into the wall, and the power supply plugs into it. This gives the user the ability to start/stop at a moment's notice, allowing both hands to be tending yarn.
