I was chatting about filament winders today and someone showed me this
one that is on kickstarter right now:

Should PSAS pitch some money at it?

One the one hand I'm not sure it's robust and well tested enough to be
worth it, but on the other hand we wouldn't have to make one. On the
other-other hand, we wouldn't get to make one :-)

Also there is the whole kickstarter thing, like will it get funded and
how far behind in fulfillment they end up.

I'm pretty sensitive to the build vs buy argument. I hate spending
*large* amounts of time on things we could conceivable buy. So I'm
tempted to recommend this or try and find some other cheap COTS
winder. But how cheap is worth it?

I wonder if anyone has any thoughts about this?
