  • Following Mystic...picture of my winder also

    Here she blows...fully programmable, extremely flexible, and does a true random scatterwind as well. Counts down to the 100th of a turn, and will wind as fast as 16,000prm, but I never wind it up that fast (mm..bad pun!)
    More "advanced" than anything Seymour has, according to them.

    You're letting all your secrets out Wolfe!

    Looks the same as the last time I saw it. I should post some pics of the winders I saw at work....some really old George Stevens winders that are probably from the 60's. I'll have to sneak a camera in and take some pics of them.

      Wow, Wolfe, that's very cool! Was that originally a programable lathe, or was it always a coil winder? Or was it a lathe that you made a programable wire feed for?

      The mind reels at the possibilities! Damn, I want one!
      It would be possible to describe everything scientifically, but it would make no sense; it would be without meaning, as if you described a Beethoven symphony as a variation of wave pressure. Albert Einstein

        It's a dedicated coil winder built in Germany. I had no part in it's production, and this particular one was the first model of it's kind to enter the US.
        It has network capabilities. I can program it to do a different wind pattern every 2, 5, 10, 20, 100 turns...or whatever number I choose. I could make each turn different. Not just simple back and forth. I can wind on the left, right, center...wherever in the coil I want - up to 9,999 different "winds" in each coil.
        And, I can wind by hand...athough it's too tall to do it comfortably.
        It cost more than most new cars.

        This winder was redesigned by the company and became the FW022. I may have had some input in it's redesign after giving the company feedback about it's bulkyness, height, and other things that the seem to have implimented.

          pretty cool Wolfe

          Well since it costs more than a new car and has about 9000 different scatter patterns, leaves me wanting but thats about it.

            You're killing me Wolfe. You have any idea how badly I want to purchase one of those? lol

              Looks like it will wind a bobbin very fast being set to 6,000rpm. Shame it seems to still only do one at a time.

              How can you decide which scatter pattern to use? Is it programmed with pattern that are from real vintage pickups or what?

                Althout it will wind up to 6000rpm (16000 actuall I think) I never take it that high. 3000rpm max for me.
                the machine has two different screens...the one you see, and the programming screen. On the programming screen I can add "lines" of prgogram that tell the traverse where to wind, and at what amount of turns to start that portion of the program. IE: After 200 winds, move to the left and wind 20 turns, then to the right and wind 55 turns, then to the middle and wind 3 turns, then continue withthe regular pattern...
                If I manually unwind a vintage pickup and take close notes on the exact wind pattern, I could program the machine to wind exactly the same coil pattern...but it would take an enormous amount of time.

                  Omg!!!

                  Yeah, Wolfe you must be "The Tone Wizard". Equipment like that makes me wonder how you react to bad Instrument cables
                  Thats wicked!!!

                    Oddly enough, I don't really put much thought into cables. As long as they're well built and won't fail easily, I stick to relatively short cables.
