So far, so good...

It's not inexpensive, that's for sure. But I'd rather be building guitars than building winding machines, so I was willing to pay for the convenience of a turnkey solution. I've only wound a couple pickups on it so far, but it is quick and quiet, and the counter has worked without a hitch. Assembly was quick and easy. The machine itself is assembled, you just have to attach it to the baseboard and mount the guide bar. The only additional step I had to take was polishing that bar. It seemed a little rough right out of the box and I didn't want to risk the wire snagging on it. I just chucked the bar in a hand drill and polished it up that way. It's nice that instructions were included but I think they could be improved upon. They assume a certain level of pre-existing knowledge, I think. I would recommend that anybody new to winding pick up Jason Lollar's book. You won't need the information on building a winder if you buy this one, but there's plenty of other useful stuff in there and it has much more in the way of background information and prerequisite knowledge. Time will tell how it holds up to frequent use, but so far I definitely don't regret the purchase. It's much better than my previous DIY winder. If it had an auto-traverse mechanism, I'd give it 5 stars.
