K'nex Motorized Skein Winder Part 2

So I've gone ahead and made a little video about the k'nex motorized skien winder I created telling a little bit about how it works and how I built it. I'll get around to making more detailed instructions some day I'm sure.
Anyway here's the vid -

A couple of notes; the skein winder can used as a swift by pulling the motor gear out away from the axle gear. You can also give it a handle if you don't have a motor, they are fairly inexpensive however. Also I think if you use this with a cone I would put the guide at a right angle so it hovers above the cone. You'd get better feed I think.
