Up for sale is a Cenco model 31377 rotator, which could be used for winding coils. This device has a counter that can be activated to count the number of rotations, (which probably shouldn't be used at very high speeds). The speed is adjustable, and the direction is reversible (don't reverse it while the motor is running though). This machine appears to be full functional (though I haven't tested the timer feature).
Included are three accessories: a Cenco centripetal force demonstrator, a disk (or flat coil) holder, and a drill chuck (which I don't have the key to open). This machine has a cast metal frame, so it's very stable when running, and the motor locks into three different potions. As for the negatives, there is a bit of tape on the cord, and one of the feet is not original. Also, the bridge rectifier for the motor was replaced at some point with a beefier one.
Payment is via only, and I'm selling this as-is. Shipping is to the United States only, and please note that this item is very heavy (24lbs boxed), due to the cast metal frame, so shipping may be expensive

My asking price is $50 plus shipping (was $60).

I am interested. Do you think it could wind guitar pickups?

Eta I am passing.

To answer a few questions:
You should be able to wind guitar coils on here, but you need to find a way to attach them to the output shaft.
The minimum speed is about 60 rpm, and it doesn't have a ton of torque at the speed, but it should be enough for fine wire.
The box dimensions are: 18 long x 14.5 wide x 9 high

Price lowered from $60 to $50. If this doesn't sell, I will probably scrap it for the nice Variac inside, but I'd rather it go to someone who can use the whole thing.

This has been sold and can be locked. However, I still need to know where to ship it to (I sent a PM as well)!
