Link for DIY electric spinning wheel

Posted by Fairy Yarnmother on May 6, 2009

Here’s a site on how to build your own electronic spinning wheel.  http://www.glacialwanderer.com/hobbyrobotics/?p=79  It gives good directions and looks well thought out.  My DH and I are  trying to make 2  electronic yarn winders out of a sewing machine motor to use with dyed sock blanks.  My wrists are getting sore trying to wind the 2 strands at the same time before I use the CSM.  Glacialwanderer in his article that is will cost between $50 to $150 to make.  that’s much cheaper then a store bought one.  It just depends on how much you spend on the sewing machine motor.
