    Default A question

    Does anybody know anything about winding pickups where the bobbin is stationary and the wire is wrapped around and indexed for level wind?

    Is lockdown making you bored.....such that you have to find a way to needlessly complicate a fairly simple setup merely to waste time and effort.

    seems a lot easier to spin a small bobbin than a 5lb+ spool of wire

    Yeah, no one approaches winding this way because it's inefficient.

    There are machine/automated winders that ensure a "level wind", but perfect winds don't always result in the most sonically interesting product. It's fine if you're trying to manage tolerances at production-level, but there's also a reason why "handwound" and "scatterwound" type products are so popular.
