Its seriously fun and so easy a child could do it. I almost wanted to rewind a few balls, just cause it was fun to see it build from a tangled mess to a compact, easily stored yarn cake. Most assuredly worth the price, if not more. Do yourself a favor and buy it!
I'm concerned about the plastic knob that tightens the device to the table edge. It's not holding. The problem seems to be when winding, the small amount of back-and-forth tends to loosen it. How many times will I tighten it before it's permanent.
The eyelet is also a tiny bit problematic. Over time, it tends to move closer to the device. I'm wondering how many times I can pull it out before it won't stay out.
I have experienced the yarn caught around the gears and find that holding the yarn up a bit higher than the eyelet reduces this problem to almost nothing.
I was able to wind a double strand of yarn to use in applications requiring two strands of yarn to increase the bulkiness.
No problems with attaching the winder to the edge of a table. The instruction sheet states that the thickness of the work surface should not be more than 1.4 inche which is a little less that 1-1/2 inch.
The yarn guide should be rotated up and pulled out all of the way so it will stay in place. You should check it periodically to make sure it is still secure. If you keep a little bit of tension on the yarn by letting it run between your thumb and finger of your non-winding hand it helps in forming tighter cake. It also lets you know if a tangle is encountered so you would be less likely to get into a mess.
There is a slot at the end of the spindle where you lay the end of the yarn to kind of secure it. I have marked the side where the loose end hangs down so I will know where it is when removing the wound cake from the spindle. The first couple of winds sometimes slip off of the spindle, but a little care taken will remedy that.
I have wound yarn from skeins with no problem. Some of the skeins did not have a center pull end but by reaching inside the skein and pulling out the end, a center pull skein was produced. It makes it much easier to wind the yarn.
