This is the scans I made of the owners manual for a Morris Coil Winder and a scan of the dial disc. Someone may be able to use the info.

At one time, John Folsom could have used one of those winders.

You can find them used. They used to run about $100 used.

That ebay winder has some missing bits. A shaft the supports the wire guide and serves as a cam follower. A return spring and clip the allows the cam to follow.

Although Morris never made any model distinction there is a model with a cast iron frame. Parts that clamp 11 pins t to make spider web coils, two versions, one with a split cast hub and another with a pair of embossed flat washers.

There were some changes to various clamps, gears and collars, to make them less costly.

I bought one of these new as a boy, from Allied, even then the frame was cast aluminum... FWIR I wrote to them (Morris, MoReCo) and got additional gears of different tooth counts and additional cams. I made a cam to swing 1" to make lumped inductances... I may have the letter around, seems there was some association with a clothing manufacturer. Then they went out of the winder biz.
