Um, yeah, the title pretty much says it all.  A WooLee winder is my tax refund gift this year so I just ordered it and am wondering how long those of you that have one had to wait Smiley

Thanks Smiley

You're going to love the WooLee Winder!!!

I think it depends on the model you order and if Nathan has it in stock.

I had mine within a week of ordering.  It was for a Kromski.

I wish I could talk Nathan into making one for an Ashford DD Jumbo ...

Thanks Smiley  My wheel is a Louet Victoria so hopefully it won't take too long Smiley  I'm super excited about it, I truly hate sliding the little guide manually, it really bugs me Smiley

I never thought I would get a WooLee Winder.  I poo-poo'ed them for years and years.  It never really bothered me to stop to change the yarn on the hecks, but I've found my spinning is far more consistant and faster with the
WooLee winder.

I really have to be careful when I'm plying on the Ashford Jumbo ... I forget to change the hecks and soon I have on part of the bobbin filled and the rest empty!   ARRGGHH!!

Hee hee, I bet you do forget once you're used to having it on there.  I didn't get one when I first started spinning, couldn't afford it and just didn't think it was reasonable to spend so much on an accessory for my wheel.  Now that my spinning time is getting more and more limited I feel like I'll be happy to invest a bit to end all the stopping and starting Smiley  I love my wheel, we get along great and hopefully the WooLee winder will just add to the experience Smiley
