I found two places that said they used to carry them, but they are no longer available. It only takes a couple of minutes to wind by hand, anyway, so I never even considered if they were made. I did find thisthough for all the do-it-yourselfers.

Thanks guys My boyfriend thought it might hurt my wrist and take forever with a hand crank ball winder. He may want to also try the diy instructions though...he's crazy about DIY with stuff like that. I'll let him know. Thanks again
Unless you are the dantiest and most petite precious little flower petal, or you are the princess from "The Princess and the Pea", you wont hurt your wrist. In fact, I think the ball winder REDUCES the stress from winding balls the old fashioned way!
