o Makes a very large center-pull ball - up to one pound of yarn
o Great for winding large skeins or bulky yarns
o No oiling or adjusting required thanks to a ball bearing drive
o Longer counter-weight bracket greatly reduces vibration
o 15" base eliminates "knuckle-smacking" while winding
o Extra long table clamp secures the winder to a variety of table surfaces
o Tall, soft rubber feet prevents the winder from sliding and scratching your table
o Special drive belt material makes for less slipping while making a ball

How It Works:
The Strauch winder generates a unique and distinctive diamond-shaped patterned ball as a result of its complex rotation. Two things must happen at the same time in order to wind a perfect ball. The whole drive wheel assembly must rotate as the crank is turned and it must also smoothly revolve on the clear plastic drive cone. Because of this off-center rotation, the ball winder must be clamped to a work surface.

It is important not to wind the ball too fast. Winding too fast will cause the yarn cylinder to slip on the plastic cone and will give you an irregular ball.

The extra long length table clamp allows the winder to be clamped to a standard 1-inch thick kitchen counter. For those who use a table that does not have a front drop down piece of wood like you find on a typical dining room table, the clamp can reach further under the table to prevent any wobbling or "flapping" of the ball winder base.

A video with techniques on preventing the yarn from slipping off the ball, and how to maintain proper yarn tension, can be watched here:
