CATALOG: Electric "EasyWind" Skein Winders


The Electric "EasyWind" tools are designed for the semi-commercial yarn producer and/or processor - OR for anyone needing motorized assistance in their craft tools. Are your orders beginning to pile up? If cranking is getting tough on your hand, elbow, shoulder, or you are just plain tired of cranking - then the "EasyWind" is designed for YOU. Made of various hardwoods. Each "EasyWind" has ball bearings for a fluid, smooth winding operation. The 1/20 h.p. motors are 1550 rpm (no load). The variable-speed control is also the On/Off switch and runs the motor at the speed that meets your individual need or comfort level. These motorized tools are not automatic and cannot be left unattended when in use. An 8 foot electric cord is attached. On/Off foot switches are also available. These are described in the "Spinning Items" page under the section on our E-Spinner.
The skein winders have 5.75" long straight pegs on each arm; holds a large quantity of yarn. Our mechaical COUNTER is installed on each skein winder and a yarn guide is on the platform.


EasyWind ADJUSTABLE SKEINER with PEGS-PLUS

The arms on this "EasyWind" skeiner adjust so that the circumference of the skeins can measure from as small as 30 inches to as large as 76 inches. The Pegs-Plus have a 2" flange with a 5/8" lip at the end of each peg. This allows for better retention of yarn to accommodate winding large skeins; can be removed. Skeins are easily removed by loosening and shortening one of the arms to release the tension. A mechanical counter is mounted on the skeiner. Total yardage will depend on the positions of the adjustable arms. Specs: overall length is 35", width 18", overall height 31", weighs approximately 21 pounds.

WE MAY STILL HAVE PARTS FOR THESE ELECTRIC SKEINERS, BUT THEY ARE NO LONGER IN PRODUCTION. 


EasyWind 2-YARD SKEINER


This "EasyWind" Skein Winder is available in the standard 2-yard (pictured). Since these arms are not adjustable, some caution is needed when removing a skein to prevent too much pressure on the pegs. Gradually loosen the skein from all 4 pegs before removing it. A MECHANICAL COUNTER is mounted on the skeiner. The total yardage of the skein on a 2-yd skeiner would be double the amount shown on the counter. Specs: overall length is 34", width 16", overall height 31", and weighs approximately 18 pounds. NO LONGER IN PRODUCTION.
