Our Conductive Thread Winding Machine Hack!

Take an old and used thread winding machine, an Arduino Uno, our Relay Board Kit, an LCD Screen, a few switches, a 5V Power Supply (and a few more parts here and there) and we have… a Thread Winding Machine designed to measure and wind a piece of conductive thread neatly around an Electro-Fashion bobbin!


The motor within the winding machine spins a bar that protrudes from the left side of the machine, holding the Electro-Fashion t-shirt (thread holder) on the end. With each spin, the conductive thread is wrapped around the t-shirt.

The Arduino Uno has been programmed to drive the Relay Board, which determines how many times the motor should spin the t-shirt depending on the length that we require the conductive thread to be. The LCD Screen lists the modes that are available e.g. ‘2m T-shirt’, ‘6m T-shirt’ and ‘45m Bobbin’, which are controlled by two buttons – one button changes the mode and the other runs the command that has been selected.



Our conductive thread is available in reels of 50 yards/45m, 2m, and 6m.
