Tim Stoltz’s Interpretation of the Smithwick Binder
(More information on the Smithwick Binder)

To use the binder, you just insert the blank, tie on the string and start cranking, pulling the  blank through as you go, tie it off and repeat, but turn the wheel in the opposite direction.

I use some 1" PVC in & out to support sections. The in-feed pipe helps to keep the strips from flopping around. The turn-round level winds the mason line on the reels.

Don Ginter’s Binder

This is the whole thing ready to go. The connection from the drill press to the old  drill stub shaft where the armature was is a piece of 3/8's rod with a piece of  tygon tubing slipped over it.

This is a closeup of the working parts. The  thread tensioners are off old sewing machines that seem to be a dime a dozen at  repair shops. Lots of other really nice parts available in sewing machines too  for those who like to build 'stuff'.

This is the bottom of the thing showing the old 3/8's drill front end and the drive sheave which is on the output end of the  drill where the chuck used to be.

Surely somebody could get fancy making one of these  but I just wanted to get it running and run some bamboo through it. The main  thing for me is to have a glued up section go through with no hitches because  the binder I built before this one failed halfway through and then the glue  started to set up before I got it straightened. Not good.
