Crimson Guitars release a new video review of a Manual Coil Winder we designed and branded for them .
In answer to a few of their points raised in the video
The auto traverse add-on plugs in to the back of the machine and will bolt onto the tapped holes of the base plate.
We will release information so people can build their own auto traverse add-on or if enough demand we can make a few up.
The Gauss and Resistance again plugs in the back and is a separate unit. So again we will be showing people how to build their own add-on or releasing one. The gauss meter allows you to test the strength of the magnets and also the polarity.
The Bobbin plate has a number of spaced, tapped holes for popular pickup dimensions. Most people would use M4 bolts and attach the bobbin with no slugs in to wind, then insert slugs after. This would mean the bobbin is held securely in place while winding.
The magnets were supplied to be used for pickups that already have the slugs in and needed re-winding.
Maybe a tail stock add-on also in the future could also be in place for people attaching the pickups to the bobbin plate the Crimson way !!
All the plates are aluminium and bead blasted, followed by oxidization treatment.
We have seen posts in other guitar forums where people are indeed winding at 3500 RPM, so we decided that we would over engineer 🙂
The machine was planned to go out as a kit for people to assemble, this would keep the price down. But we have built the first 25 units and branded for Crimson Guitar members as a free build service.
Thanks again Ben and Luigi.
