Yarn MeterFiber Artist Supply Co.
Looking for a tool to measure your yarn length? You're going to love this one! Just use the ultra clamp to secure the yarn meter between your swift and ball winder, send the yarn through the yarn guide, around the yarn measurement wheel & out the other yarn guide. We make these in our Cincinnati workshop using quality UpGreen Counters, German IGUS bearings, ABS gears & a solid hard maple block with a plywood shroud to prevent the gears from getting damaged.
Accuracy: The diameter of this yarn measurement wheel 1.91" +/-0.005" in diameter, which equals about 6" in circumference. The gears have a 6:1 ratio, so six revolutions of the yarn measurement wheel is 1 actuation of the counter.
Love the yarn meter!! Very well made and accurate. It is also very pleasant to look at with the smooth pretty wood no snags. Tight fitting clamp. One suggestion . Please make holes for the clamp on 3 sides. For my smaller set up in the house I cannot clamp it down because there is only one clamp hole. We can figure out the right direction for the wheel to turn and count upwards. Thank you for a great product!
