HOW TO USE WOOL WINDER
A device for winding yarn into a coerless ball, typically from a skein form.
1, Set spindle into geared base by aligning notches. While holding geared base, turn spindle clockwise to secure.
2.Clamp the ball winder to table or other support using integral clamp, clamp will work on thickness up to 1.5''. Clamp is controlled by turning red knob.
3.Rotate yarn guide so loop end faces upward. Pull it out as far as it will go, locking it into working position as shown.
4.Yarn to be wound should be supported on a swift to allow uniform transfer. Feed end of yarn through yarn guide and secure in notch on top of spindle. Yarn is easily placed through guide by simple wrapping it, in a clockwise direction, around the end coil.
5,Turn handle clockwise, forming the yarn into a ball. Finished ball can be withdrawn from winder by simply pulling off from underside of ball. Yarn from ball can be used by withdrawing from center core or from outer edge.

The one problem I experienced (and hence loss of 1-star from review) is related to the guide hook and bar. The bar only "locks" in place when pulled outward away from the winder. But there is no resistance, detent, or spring to hold it in the outward position -- so with the yarn pulling inward and a little vibration, it quickly moves and falls over.
I solved the guide problem by adding a small spring, the type you find I ballpoint pens. I simply slipped the spring over the end of the bar and slid it all the way to the base -- then put a small drop of epoxy at the 90-degree bend in the guide, securing the spring. (See photos). Now the bar stays in place while winding, but can still be pushed inward and swung down for storage. I highly recommend the manufacture consider adding a spring to the design. Sample product provided for review.
If this came with a spring or other way to hold the guide in place, it would get 5 stars. But other than that, it functions well and seems made well, especially at this price point.
Other hints for the yarn winder...
You really do have to hold the yarn tension with your other hand while you wind the yarn by turning the crank... otherwise the yarn is too loose.
You can make a much larger cake of yarn than specified IF you hold the yarn downward with good tension before it goes through the yarn guide and on the winder. Just be careful when removing large yarn cakes and slide your hand underneath to free up any yarn that may get caught under the spindle. It's not a big deal.
You can use a paper towel roll and some paper towels placed inside the roll to wedge it onto the spindle and use the paper towel roll as a "core" to wind onto... for those who like to use a yarn dispenser when they knit and crochet. I find the toilet paper roll is too short for my huge cakes I make with this winder.
One person I read has bent their yarn guide SLIGHTLY backward so they can manage getting a whole skein of Red Heart Super Saver yarn (7 oz) on one cake and it works for them. They didn't say how they managed to bend it but said their husband is handy and did it for them.
Another person I read has used electrical tape wound around the bottom bit of the yarn guide to it cannot fall down. I thought that was clever too.
I've now made about 50 large yarn cakes with my whole stash in a couple of days with absolutely no troubles at all. I found that a Super Saver Jumbo (1 lb) skein will make 3 large yarn cakes that I toss in plastic zip lock bags and stack in my plastic yarn bins. What a space saver and no more crazy tangles of yarn tails making a mess of my stash. Best money I ever saved... not listening to the bad reviews on this yarn winder.
What went wrong?
1) The clip on the bottom of the winder does not allow for thick table tops, so I was not able to use my normal working table. In addition, the clip should be longer to stabilize the winder from the bottom.
2) The clip that holds the yarn or string for winding is unstable. It fell a number of times because there was no locking mechanism to hold it in place against the force of yarn coming through it.
3) The unstable clip kept falling into the spindle, so the small amount of yarn that was wound was an unpleasant mess.
4) The mechanism pulled my yarn into the gears and locked it there. It was necessary to cut in three sections to unwind and pull it loose.
I have owned a ball winder from Knit Picks (available on Amazon.com) for several years. I have used it successfully to wind both commercial and hand-spun yarns, and NEVER has it wound yarn into gears and caused damage to my yarn. I suggest buying the KnitPicks winder for a few more dollars rather than this unfortunate winder. I won’t be using this winder again!
Sample provided for unbiased review.
It works very fast, too. Just make sure you keep the yarn even with the metal feeder or even higher because if it goes too low, it will jam the mechanism. Then you have to cut it out. Not fun.
When done, the top and bottom are flat so it is easy to stack.
It is also good for freaking out a nosy cat. One crank of the handle and you pretty much have the thing to yourself.
The photo was about two hours of straight winding.
