Re: homade winder blueprints wanted
O.K. - you won't build this but...

I'm busy with a programmable winder with a "learn" function that should replicate hand winding patterns for consistency in duplicating pickups.  
I plan to run this on an old BBC computer then swing the software across onto a P.C.  
The software is written in my head, I have a stepper motor and just need some of that mojo they call time.  
I'll keep you posted.  
Rob.

Just saw this on Ebay.  
There is a mention of "The Book" in the text. It sure looks like Jason's design to me but for some reason he doesn't give credit.

I guess if you only wanted to do 1 pickup a week that might be a good idea. Pretty handy and a good amount of imagination went into that little winder. I think its cool someone would put that thing together. :0

First winder i made was made from a lego set. That was 26 or 27 years ago and i still had it about 7 years ago when I threw it out during a shop clean up otherwise it could still be working today.
