October 2020 Update

As usual very busy this end in the workshop and at the moment we have sold out of all our stocked Coil Winding Machines.

Usually we would be straight on to assembling the next batch of which ever model we had ran out of, but we have being building a larger Custom Machine for a customer that is taking longer than expected. And delays from suppliers/couriers due to the Covid-19 situation is not helping much.


The new Guitar Pickup Quad Winder we had expected to start assembling by now and the list is nearly full for the first batch, but again there have been delays in receiving our parts that are custom made for us and also parcels still out !

We are making this machine our priority to get in stock and thanks for the patience of all the guys waiting.


The 200mm Coil Winder MK4 is all sold out and we will be launching the new MK5 model as soon as we get time and we already have a few people on the waiting list.

The online shop has been updated with CAD renderings of the new MK5 model and we will be updating with pictures as soon as we have assembled the first machine.

More information can be found at

All the parts are now in for the MK5, we just need time to schedule when we can start assembling.

The new model has a 3rd Axis which moves the Wire Guide back and forth and will need some software/firmware development to implement this new feature before release.


The Guitar Pickup Mini Coil Winders again sold out very quickly and all parts are on order and should be in within the next 2-3 weeks.

The list is filling up fast for this batch, but still room if you want one and feel free to email us at to be put on the list.

So sorry for the delay and please remember that we are a small business with only two of us full time.
Each machine is hand assembled, tested and packed in our small workshop as well as the development of the software and firmware.

But we are getting there and hope to send out emails to everyone on the list soon ! 🙂🙂

New Quad Guitar Pickup Coil Winder for 2020

We have been asked a lot over the years if we could make a Guitar Pickup Winding machine that will wind more than one pickup.

The Quad Guitar Pickup Winder is what we have came up with that will allow four pickups to be wound together at the same time.

You can see the CAD rendered design in the animation below.

If you are interested in one of these new machines then please feel free to email us

Test software released for running more than one Coil Winding Machine on the same computer.

For Customers that have purchased more than one of our Coil Winding Machines, they have always had to have a dedicated computer for each machine.

On 1st July 2020 we have released a test version of the software that will now allow multiple machines to run from a single computer and more information can be found on the page link below.

Update on the Automated BVM

We have now setup a dedicated domain for the Automated BVM at

There are few more details on the machine and the CAD renders of what the actual prototype will look like.

Not as pretty as the original concept, but workable.

Also the inside of the machine is shown with working mechanics and minimal components as planned.

We had the Acetal arrive today, so will be milling the plates out tomorrow 🙂

Coronavirus (Covid-19) Update.

Coronavirus (Covid-19) Update.

We are still open and up and running this end dispatching orders.
Being a small family run business and because our workshop is not open to the public, we are more than happy to keep the business running for the moment.
Also at the beginning of last week, we released a concept idea of automating a Bag Valve Mask (BVM) that can been seen in the animation below.
Automating a readily available Bag Valve Mask (BVM), also known as a hand operated manual resuscitator.
This would free up the personal that would normally be need to operate a BVM.

The device could act as a stop gap in hospitals or at home where a ventilator is needed, but not currently available.
This is not a design to replace a ventilator that has a lot more features, but maybe a low-cost solution to help out.

At the moment we are looking to rapid prototype this machine in house at CNC Design and looking to work with medical professionals first to make sure that the design and use is a viable solution.

This week we have finished the CAD design of version1.1 and have ordered all the parts to create the working prototype.

We will be releasing this Automated BVM device open source, so anyone can build it or manufacture it.
