There are numerous styles of bobbin winders. Some of these are more adjustable while others are portable. Because of this, some people adapt cordless drills, spinning wheels or drink mixers to wind storage bobbins.
If you want to consider the DIY approach for spinning bobbin winder, Quilting Climber has you covered. For those who are new to bobbin winder, you might find it expensive and they’re actually manual to boot. However, with variable speed drill and dowel, you may make one for an affordable price.
Then you can wind your own bobbins and save quite a bit of money in the process. You will need an electrical drill that plugs in because the rechargeable;e ones just don’t have the same power.
What you just need is a reversible drill that has power cord and with variable speed. There’s consensus that rechargeable does not have the longevity and oomph to wind the entire spool. If you have your own drill, this can be done with a cost that’s less than $5.
Make sure to follow the steps provided on Quilting Climber. This will not only save your time, but also you will be able to save a particular amount of money.
