    Neo-powered sidewinder fresh off the winder

    ...and just about ready to go into the test-bed bass.


    The blades are laser cut 430 stainless steel:

    Bobbins are single-layer PCB, with 1/4" X 1/2" neodymium magnets:

    They're a tad too deep for these particular covers, but I've got some deeper ones coming in from Mojo. Hopefully should fit a little better.

    Thanks!

    The winder is great. Once you get the start and stop positions on the traverse located properly, it winds really nice, tight coils. And I almost think that not having to sit there and guide the wire if I don't want to is worth the price alone.
