Power Base for Ball Winder -Q

  • $400.00

Leadtime notice

This is the motorized drive option that converts our manual crank handle Heavy Duty Ball Winder into a Motorized Electric Ball Winder. This unit is used around the World and is without question, the "workhorse" of the yarn industry.

This unit has 10 speeds forward and 3 reverse. Has a Save function so the user can automatically return to a speed they like. It can also be controlled by our Electronic Yarn Meter as well as our Electronic Rotation Counter (slight cable mod needed - by user). Unit can also be controlled by a foot pedal (On-Off-function only - not speed).

100-240 VAC, 50-60 Hz can be used anywhere on Earth. Includes 3 drive belts (orange) which should last up to 6 months each (before stretching).

Once you go electric, you will never wind manually again! Best tool for a yarn shop (after their cash register). Can be purchased as a bundle with the Ball or Cone Winder.

Note: There is only one version of the Power Base regardless of whether you mount a Cone Winder or Ball Winder on top. The only changes that occur related to the motorized option have to do with the selection of the ball winder's options.

NOTE: Ball Winder is sold separately. This is just the motor drive portion of the system.

Ask a Question
  • Can this be used with 220 Volt power?

    Absolutely! The power base uses a DC power supply that can operate on 100-240 VAC 50/60 Hz. Therefore, it is usable anywhere on Earth.

  • When ordering the motorized to go with the ball winder, do you need to buy any extra accessories? ( belts, screws, etc...)

    No, both the ball winder and the Power Base are complete items. So, in other words, the manual ball winder includes everything that you need to use the ball winder manually with the crank handle and when you purchase the Motorized option, that includes everything you need to make the manual ball winder into an electric one. A person can start with a manual unit and at any time add the Power Base and they can make the manual unit into an electric one. When you buy both items at the same time, it is the same situation. Nothing else is needed.

  • Are the power supplies available yet?

    The power supplies have always been available. Did you try to buy one?
