The Joe Collins winder is a good one, the only issue I had with it was you could not do barrels that were the other way around on the arbor meaning the winding end of the arbor protrudes from the bottom of the barrel as opposed to the cap. the only way around this is to make up or find an assortment of barrel arbors with the tang facing the other way, you can then remove the spring on the winder as you would normaly do. You will find these types of “reverse” barrels in carriage clocks and on the chime train of some chiming clocks.
