The EEW Yarn Counter kickstarter was a huge success. It sold over 3,100 of the counters, which will let let me make a huge initial batch. If you missed the kickstarter then I will be selling it on my store after I finish shipping all the kickstarter rewards. I did release a video that goes into a lot of detail about the Yarn Counter.
EEW 6.0 Switch
A EEW community member showed me a new style of switch that can be used by your hand or switch that works with the EEW 6.0. If you are interested you can purchase it on Amazon by searching for “tattoo foot pedal”, but since there was a ton of interest in it I’m going to investigate what the price would be for me to include a switch like this with the EEW 6.0 in the future. Below is a video that goes into details about the differences between my current foot switch and this alternative.
3D Printed Parts
As I’m sure many of you know I like releasing 3D printable parts accessories for EEW products I think might be useful to the community. I always release the files for free and let other people sell prints since I know most people don’t have 3D printers. For things like bobbins 3D printing gives you many more color options, and others parts aren’t popular enough to justify me making an expensive mold so 3D printed versions are the only option for those. If you have access to a 3d printer or would like to see what you can buy from others I suggest checking out my 3D printing page which gives more information.
Cone Winder Prototype Update
I made a video about the latest prototype cone winder I’ve been working.
