New member long time lurker! I built a wrapping jig others may be able to get some ideas from...

Just wanted to say thanks for allowing me to join and I have used the board a lot as a lurker trying to figure out more info on wrapping jigs. I finished up a new wrapping jig made out of crutches and a plastic cutting board that I wanted to share and possibly get some input on. I thought it may give people some ideas on making a jig and if anyone has an thoughts on improvements, I would love to hear them as well!
[youtu.be] That is the YouTube video I made that shows some of what went into making it and a short demo of operation. Thanks!

The Sully was one of the hand wrapping devices I studied up on! I liked a lot about it and that is where the spring thread clamping idea came from. What I didn't like about them is how loose the supports seemed to be on the dovetail they slide in and I also prefer to have my line lay on the blank at the front where I can see it better from a seated position.

Hey, thanks for the subscription on YouTube! It wouldn't take much to make it a power wrapper at all.
