Product Description


This is truly an amazing yarn winding solution.

Our standard sized motor winder offers many of the same high quality components of that our jumbo winder offers, but without the ability to operate the unit manually or the ability to make jumbo cakes. It's a simple plug & play operation and runs off of 100-240v wall power. The yarn guide is not adjustable and this winder maxes out at about 5 ounces of fine weight yarn. See photo in listing of a cake comparison between the jumbo and the standard size yarn balls. 

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. If they stretch you can cut, heat the ends, and weld them back together. There is be a little "flashing" that will need to be cut. We also sell replacement belts. 

Simplicity was 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.
