Looking into buying this one too . It’s on sale too!! Update , I showed this link to Ed (hubby) and he liked the idea of the gears . So while I was in the shower to my surprise he ordered it for me ! I have a [B][I]Strauch[/I][/B] ball winder which I’ve been very happy with until it started acting up . It takes a belt and they need to be replaced . The plastic cone needed to be replaced but ‘Tim the Tool Man’ as I call Ed , decided that he could fix it . He fixed it but there is something still not right with it . It some times winds weird . I watched a video on this new winder and I like that it has a bobbin feed and you don’t have to hold the yarn as it winds.
Thanks Lori for the link !
