I have been looking at the Schacht hand bobbin winders for a while but I just can't bring myself to buy one. It seems like a lot of money for a simple tool. I know for certain that I like them. It's what we use in the weaving studio at school so knowing that I like it is not an issue. My husband thinks he might be able to build one for me but he's not really sure how to go about it.
What I'm wondering is if anyone else has built one or knows of plans on the internet to build one?
I have been using an electric drill up until now, but for Christmas I received a Bluster Bay Mini End Feed shuttle and I've quickly discovered that winding pirns does not work on an electric drill (or at least not one the one I have access to) It's too imprecise. The drill is fine for bobbins, but I want to use my new toy and winding by hand takes FOREVER. :( Any ideas would be helpful.
Thanks in advance,
