In Search of:    Cone Winder:

My grandmother used to have an electric cone I know they exist!  But I haven’t been able to find one.  Does anybody have one they don’t use anymore?  I can’t even find a new one..they all are essentially ball winders on a cone.  If you see one, I would love to buy it!
