I bought this ball winder to use with a new tabletop swift I purchased. It was easy to put together and use and does not damage my wood table when clamped on. I like the dial on top used to tighten it to the table - easy to use. Makes perfect center pull balls. Highly recommend it!
Stanwood Needlecraft - Compact Yarn Ball Winder Hand-Operated YBW-B
- FREE domestic, others calculated at Checkout
This ball winder (Model YBW-B) makes center pull yarn balls with a capacity of about 4 oz. The clamp-on base allows it to be firmly fixed at the edge of tables, chairs, benches, or any other convenient locations. The maximum thickness of table that this can clamp on to is about 1 1/2". It is best to be used with a swift yarn winder (Umbrella or Amish style, both available under Stanwood Needlecraft brand names). But you can easily replace a swift with other devices or just simply your arms. The craftsmanship on these ball winders is superior. The cogwheels of the ball winder are fully sealed in our design so they will never eat your yarn. The cogwheels of a similar model made by our competitors are exposed and may eat your yarn (as shown in the picture).

Amazing, i love this winder! It's small and compact can be set up almost anywhere and super easy to use!
I have been looking at a yarn winder for quite some time, just could not afford one from the major chains (michaels, joanns etc) but Stanwood had the exact one and the price was excellent. My Brothers and my sister in law gave me the money to buy it and the yarn I wanted.
Way to small of balls are made. I bought 2 because the last one I bought was so good. Not this one. I am disappointed.
Delivery was very quick - I appreciated that!
Easy to assemble and to use.
I am always pleased with my purchases! Product is as described & is shipped quickly! Thanks!
Haven't had a chance to use it yet.
Excellent condition, works super well!!!
Mail order time was perfect!!
ONLY drawback...wish I had gotten a bigger one after using this one :)
