How do you Make a Ball Winder?
Well, I'll have to work out some plans as there are gears involved.

Simple ideas I've seen use electric tools (drills, mixers, etc) with some time of spool material on witch the wool (yarn, thread, fiber) is wound.

Do I have a bookmark? Yes, from a hobby clock maker, husband to Lisa Boyer are plans for a ball winder, swift, and a spindle by Clayton Boyer Clock Designs.

The appear to work well enough, but I was hoping for downloadable plans.

Now, if you wanted to launch a soda bottle into the air like a rocket, using only air and water for propulsion, I could direct you to several sites. Including my own design on my rat-hole of a website.

Alas, no yarn if involved with that hobby.
