Hi

Excuse my ignorance but can it also be used to wind small compression springs?

Thank you. Nice design.

I don't think it would work very well for compression springs because there's no way to control spacing between the coils.

This is an excellent design! Thank you for posting the files.

Forgive my ignorance please but you mention music wire, is that the same as piano wire?

Just want to know what to buy.

Thanks.

This looks good, "Collected" for making at a later date.

I think this could be improved a little by having several different holes to allow for different thicknesses of spring wire. Also, instead of the fixed-size mandrel, I am wondering whether it might be possible to use drill bits for the mandrel, allowing for multiple diameters of spring hole.

I would just modify the SCAD file and print a new winder customized for the mandrel/wire that you want.

Nice!! <- two thumbs up
