    This is my take on a mainspring winder. I made this at work where I have access to the tooling. Thanks to William for his help and pictures.

    BEE AAA UUU TTT FUL. I like, Does it have a ratchet system to aid in locking the headstock? or are you using the flat on the spindle rod to lock it? William

    Thanks William. I decided to use a flat with a thumb screw because I was running out of time before I took sick leave from work. I’m hoping to install a ratchet or hand made click system. I work with some crafty design people and the click stop is pretty cool they came up with. Next up my version of a pivot polisher and pictures. Thanks again for the help. :)

    Good looking winder. A click that reverses would be a must in my mind.

    Holy mackerel, I just found this thread. That winder is beautifully made! That is just the sort of thing that make you sleep well after you make it.
