Greetings!
Sorry this has taken me so long... I had to borrow a few things (camera included) to get this together... Above, you'll find a small video of the automatic yarn winder in action... and below, a shot of the kind of wound-ball it produces...
While I'm on the subject of yarn and diy... Did anyone catch the electric spinning wheel that was recently featured on hackaday.com? Worlds are colliding.
Enjoy the video!
