About This Item

Build the new improved Schatten pickup coil winder yourself and SAVE!

It's easy to assemble, and the kit includes instructions and all the parts. You supply simple hand tools and a soldering iron. Schatten's redesigned smaller-profile machine is ideal for occasional pickup winding in the average repair shop.

Repair old pickups, build custom overwound, underwound and coil-tapped models, and create pickups for custom or specialty instruments: with a Schatten hand-feed winder you can do it all.

The kit includes everything needed to assemble a fully working Schatten Model B winding machine. The parts are pre-drilled, and assembly consists mostly of soldering work and parts installation. Estimated assembly time is about 45 minutes.

    Improved Schatten winder features:
  • Single-arm design with switchable rotation direction
  • Stronger motor for fast 900 rpm average winding speed
  • Speed control
  • Electronic counter with reset
  • Adjustable cross-feed limiter for controlling pickup coil width
  • Durable ABS enclosure with sturdy platform base
  • Works with 38 to 44 gauge coil wire or finer
  • 110-volt

Works rather well.


Verified Buyer

At first I thought the price was too high while building the kit, however once assembled I was very pleased with it's function. Smooth, fluid motion in both directions. Counter works perfect. Simple design that works as engineered, Thanks Stewmac!


Well designed kit, great winder.


Verified Buyer

The kit was enjoyable to build, took just a couple of hours. I have wound several pickups without any problems. None that I can blame on the winder anyway, haha! The pic shows the winder rigged up and getting ready to wind a Mustang pickup.


Well Pleased

I was very hesitant in purchasing this item based on one the cost and plus several negative reviews regarding previous Schatten winders. After spending much time in making a homemade winder without much success and dependability, I decided to purchase this product. To save money I purchased this version and I enjoy tinkering with things anyways. It took me approximately 2.5 hours to assemble and the instructions were well written and illustrated. I have already wound three different pickups and was pleased. I wished I just purchased this from the beginning instead of trying to figure out another way. I could have used that time to build on my current project.
