This is my second go at a Swift and this one from Halcyon seems to be of much better quality! My first one fell apart after winding just a few skeins (purchased from Knit Picks). There was literally no finish on the wood and the threads of the anchoring screws gave way almost immediately. My Halcyon Horizontal Swift Skein Winder ($99) has a lovely finish, tight connections, and solid looking screws. I am looking forward to may years of happy winding.
