Anybody used a tattoo coil winder to wind pickups?

    Seems a lot cheaper (found one for $75 on ebay) than a pickup winder ($384 at Stewmac) and has motor/counter built-in. Haven't looked into winding RPM, but has anyone tried winding pickups with one of these?

    I did a rough job winding some Strat pickups YEARS ago with a cordless drill and feeding the wire by hand, but wouldn't mind taking a crack at a more permanent setup. Don't need anything that heavy-duty as I'm not going into business or anything; just want to wind a few sets for myself.
