With the exception of the spool, foam cushions, and red knob, the unit is made of metal. It is not likely to break by getting dropped. The disk that tighens the unit to the table from underneath the table is dense, foam covered and there are four foam cushions on the base. Despite being metal, it is unlikely to scratch anything because of this.
It winds super fast!
Unlike my other winders, when I can put the yarn across the top of the spool and it stays in place without winding the yarn around spool a few times before winding.
The group is not finding that we have to keep tightening the winder onto the table-top repeatedly while winding a single skein. Actually, after we found a good spot for it, we have not had to retighten it at all over the winding of five skeins of big super-saver skeins.
Yes, you will want to hold the yarn between your fingers as it winds to prevent the winding arm from getting tangled. No big deal- I've always done that.
It is loud. Metal gears make noise. It is not nearly as loud as our knitting group, but if you meet up with folks in a place with an echo, you will be speaking up for a bit.
It take a bit more muscle to spin than the single gear models or smaller, plastic models, but the speed makes it well worth it. Before your arm gets tired, you'll be done.
Please note: I did buy a 'refurbished' winder, so someone either didn't like it or did have a problem. For the difference in cost, all I can say is their loss is our group's gain!
Tip: even though you will have beautiful center-pull cakes, it's not advisable to knit from the strand coming from that center if your yarn is a single-ply or loosely twisted wool. It may try to felt itself together, resulting in knots or pilling.
