High speed yarn winder

This is a new addition to my craft accessory: a high speed large size yarn winder. It can handle a skein of yarn up to 10 oz. 
It is double the size of my old smaller winder. The small red one will only pull a ball of yarn to about  4oz.
The high speed has extra wheels in the gears.  It does work much faster than the regular one. The manual said 3 to 4 times faster.
Before I could use it my husband has to put some heavy grease on all the sprocket-wheels, then it works fine.

It only takes minutes to wind up three skeins of lace weight yarn with a swift..
The winder is called the U-nitt Metal Jumbo yarn/wool ball winder MH701. I got mine from Amazon over the Christmas sales period.  So you see, I have been busy planning for my new year projects.
