The desire to wrap your own pickup has been there for a long time. But it should be a special humbucker for the Cigarbox Guitar. But it's not as simple as that.
What is needed for it all. Winding machine, lacquer wire etc. must be used. Maybe with a drilling machine? No, it can't be that I don't have a hand enough afterwards. The device must be able to be operated with the foot. So I started looking for an old sewing machine. On an exchange platform I found what I was looking for. It was sold as defective. Should I take the risk? Said done I am now an owner of an old defective sewing machine.
The remark is sold as defective" was also true. Something is causing the machine to block. First the wonder spray WD40 is used. The success failed.
So I took drastichen means. Everything out which is not needed. And see there I could breathe new life into the sewing machine. You can't sew with it any more but it will be enough to wrap a pickup.
Pickup winding machine in operation. The windings are counted with an old calculator which has been converted to a winding counter. A reed contact and a magnet serve as signal transmitters.
The construction of the winding meter is recorded in a separate report.
