Customers have often asked me if I sell a counter to go along with the Rees Winder. I have had to answer with a “yes…but…” The counters I have had require a lot of work on the customer’s part; including dis-assembly of the winder itself.
Now, after much thinking, 4 prototypes, and over 60 hours of design and development, I have created a product that any modeler can install in under 5 minutes (how long does a drop of CA take to set up?) There are two steps: glue a small magnet to the large gear – and – slip the counter into the winder. That’s it!
Each item is hand made of durable, laser-cut, 1/32″ birch plywood. The counter itself counts INPUT turns, so since the winder is a 10:1 winder, simply add a zero (or multiply the value x 10) and you have your turns on the motor. Each until takes approximately 2 hours to assemble – I do the work to make it easy for you.
They are available now in the basement – look under Rubber, etc / Winders & Accessories. $30 each, complete with illustrated instructions for installation and battery replacement.
Now, get crankin’!
