This machine is hand made in Texas by Texans. We do not have anything made oversees. We operate a family owned business. The winder is great for spooling down large cones of thread to smaller spools when you run out of a primary color like white, black, blue, gold etc. It is also a money saver when a customer needs a very unusual color that may not be used again. Just buy two cones of that color and spool them down. You will find the machine will pay for itself very shortly. Also, you may wind two different colors on the same spool. Please contact Ken with any questions at 972-529-0144. A video of the winding process is shown below.
