    Anyone use this CNC winder?

    After spending the past few years winding on my home made winder that uses a sewing machine motor, I'm interested in machine winding my humbuckers. CNC winders seem to be quite pricey so I wanted to see if anyone on this forum had experience with this relatively affordable CNC coil winder?

    it looks interesting although shipping to OR came out as $178, making this one a bit cheaper:

    $562 seems to be the bottom line low ball to US

    Please note that the demo film shows winding a switching supply transformer coils. This is not the same as guitar humbucker coils. Some options for guitar pickups may not be available. Is there a software available for this winder?

    It doesn't look like it uses any different software, it looks like all the programming regarding steps, turns width, etc is done on the keypads on the winder itself. It'd definitely would be nice if it had a way to hook up to a computer through usb for more options

    I've been tempted to buy one of those, or something similar, just to see how they are.
    My coil winders are IWT, made in Germany.

    Joyfay is not the manufacturer, by the way. Check into Shining Sun, they're in Taiwan.
    Alibaba can also be a great resource.

    Sorry to resurrect an old thread, but does anybody have any thoughts on this thing?

    I can't find any evidence online of anyone using it for pickups.

    There's a PDF of the manual here:
