<>The Swedish quill winder is made to wind the paper or cardboard quills that have a very small shaft opening. It has a built-in screw clamp that mounts it to a tabletop, shelf, or counter, with the shaft running parallel to the edge of the surface. The crank handle mounts on the front of the winder and turns a worm gear, which turns the shaft. The motion is fast and even, allowing you to wind dense, uniform quills quickly. The shaft tapers slightly, allowing for some variation in the quill diameter. If you like this style of winder but need to wind the larger bobbins, pirns, or spools, see the Swedish bobbin winder.
