Pickup Winder: Wire Guide

I finally received the last parts for my DIY pickup winder today - a 30cm piece of 6mm brass tubing to act as a wire rest and two more Aluminium Hubs from Jaycar to act as guides.

Brass tubing with Aluminium Hubs to limit horizontal wire travel.
I've also received some cheap pickups kits from China (via Aliexpress) and hope to do some winding soon. I've got a couple of strat sets and a telecaster set.

Pickup kits: one Stratocaster and two Telecaster sets.

All I need to get started is a spool of 42 AWG wire. That's going to have to wait until the finances are a little stronger!
