Pickup winder in the making
I thought this could interest some of you.. I'm making a pickup winder from stuff I have laying around! I've always wanted to make my own pups and now I'm going to do a machine for it.
I'm using a brushless motor from a hard-drive, a driver for the motor and I'm going to control the winding speed with my computer, via arduino-board. I'll also use a digital counter to see how many rounds I've wound. I'll propably use a reed switch and a permanent magnet on the base of the winder to do the counting. I have already done a cradle for the coil, using the before mentioned hard-drive and it's housing.
I'll post some pics after I get home from work. Feel free to ask any questions, I'll answer them if I can.
