So I'm thinking about building my own winder that is controlled by a microprocessor. I've got a few ideas about winding features but since the control of the motor speed, frequency, ect is basically limitless I'd love some ideas from others out there.
The basic features are the normal winder stuff...direction, speed (TPD) but then it can get into advanced things like full speed turns for 10 seconds every 30 minutes ect. That way someone can control the movement to be more "real" and possibly best balance winding with wear.
So if you could design the rotation patterns...what would you do? Software control, dials/switches, ect? I'm thinking USB or battery powered and software setup :)
