HOW TO USE YOUR BATTERY BOBBIN WINDER


First, while holding the bobbin winder with nothing on it, turn it on and see how it operates. It is like a battery screw driver.

When you have filled your takli with cotton thread, enough that starts to slow up the speed of the takli, then it is time to remove it to a bobbin.

Mark one end of the bobbin with your initials so you know next time what end goes on first. Attach the end of the spun thread to the bobbin and turn on the bobbin winder, winding it carefully so it does not go off the ends of the bobbin.

Winding the Bobbin

Store your bobbin in your "takli bag" so the next time your takli is full you can attach the newly spun yarn to the yarn on the bobbin. Leaving some un-spun cotton fiber at the end will allow you to attach the new thread to the thread on the bobbin.

Attach it by laying the "bobbin thread" on top of the un-spun takli thread and spin the takli to attach the threads together. Then proceed to wind the thread from the takli to the bobbin. The bobbin will hold up to 4 or 6 loads of thread depending on how full you load your takli.
