Default Re: My first telly TV22

Your use of an Arduino for the wire feed guide could mean it also has the potential to work as a wave winder as well.

I was wondering about that - in principle I see no reason why not - its just an electronic cam function - in my day job I do a lot with multi axis servo systems and robots and this is a standard function - should be possible to implement with steppers - probably using Gcode would be the easiest way.

I read somewhere that the wire is impossible to get hold of if you were to try to rewind the overwind for example - but what is special about it?
