The Strauch Jumbo Ball Winder -
The ultimate winder! Heavy Duty, quality made. This winder makes a very large center-pull ball. One-pound balls can be made!
The newly designed Strauch Jumbo Ball Winder uses a ball bearing drive. No oiling or adjusting is needed. A longer counter weight bracket greatly reduces vibration. In addition, the longer 15" base eliminates "knuckle-smacking" while winding.
The extra long length table clamp allows the winder it to be clamped to a standard 1.5 inch kitchen counter. For those who use a table that does not have a front drop down piece of wood (like you find on a typical dining room table), the clamp can reach further under the table to prevent any wobbling or "flapping" of the ball winder base. This is a change from the original shorter clamp.
Each jumbo ball winder is tested to make sure it forms a perfect ball every time. That's why you'll find a small test ball on each and every winder.
How It Works
This unit generates a unique and distinctive diamond-shaped patterned ball as a result of its complex rotation. Two things must happen at the same time in order to wind a perfect ball. The whole drive wheel assembly must rotate as the crank is turned and it must also smoothly revolve on the clear plastic drive cone. Because of this off-center rotation, the ball winder must be clamped to a work surface. It is important not to wind the ball too fast. Doing so will distort the red bracket supporting the yarn cylinder causing it to slip on the plastic cone. Size and Weight
