    Well....ummm....it's this foot thingy....I think it was called the thread tensioner...I kinda butchered that sewing machine.



    Super glue and wooden blocks can accomplish quite a lot!

    Which fiberboard did you use? I Checked out that site, but when I search "Fiberboard" I don't think i'm getting the right thing.

    Sorry about that; it's called vulcanized fiber. I used 3/32" thick. Part number 8652K74.

    Sweet, thanks man. Now just to hunt down a cheap sewing machine.

    Ah, I'll have to try something like that. I stripped down the "sewing machine" part of mine a little more, so I don't have the tensioner thing anymore.

    Here's the original version:

    and then the semi-current one:

    [VIDEO]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rd_D_6zOZa8]YouTube - *UPDATE* Homemade Pickup Winder from BROTHER Sewing Machine Parts - Part 2[/VIDEO]

    ...on the current model, the motor was moved to the middle of the shaft so that I could put another output on the other side. To do something like your design, I could probably attach a longer, rounded piece to contact a counter and just mount it to the base...?

    Sorry for the derail, BTW. >.>
