LEGO ballwinder

I know I have seen the LEGO Mindstorms ballwinder before but it caught my eye in this post because we bought Erik a set of those Mindstorms at the garage sale a couple of weeks ago. I asked him Erik to make me one and he said sure, then he could buy a newer set since the old stuff would all be tied up with the winder. I can't decide if it's worth $280 to have a motorized ball winder. I am thinking perhaps not.

    I can't remember where I read it, but I'm sure if you google it you'll find it. It was a post about someone who showed you how to wind a center-pull ball with a kitchen mixer. However, the Lego winder gets creativity points for sure! I have to see how expensive that kit costs here in Germany. I'm thinking Lego stuff may be cheaper here.

    I've seen that somewhere too. I wonder where it was. I'm not eager to mess with my KitcheAid mixer and the yarn though. Of course, replacing it costs just as much as a new set of LEGO mindstorms.
