These 3d printed quills are an alternative to the cardboard or paper quills.   Especially when using an electric double ended winder, cardboard quills can start to warp after a number of uses.  These 3d printed quills are much stronger and will not bend.  

We've designed a short section on one that has threading, similar to a screw, that makes it much easier to start winding by reducing slippage.  The quills are 5.75" long and work well with the Louet Flying Dutchman shuttle.  The Flare Quills generally are preferred; they also work with the double ended Leclerc bobbin winder.

The only disadvantage I've found to the 3d printed quills is that they are slightly noisier than the paper quills;  this rattle is similar to that you hear with bobbins in a boat shuttle.
