The black band is actually a hair band with the rubber grips inside, and as you pull it towards you it turns the bobbin and the thread winds on. (The purple part is actually a belt I wear when winding - it has a ring for the band to slide through, but since I was taking the picture I just tied it to a chair to show how it works.)

Yes, it does move unless someone holds it, or I have to sit close enough to the table to hold the winder with one hand while tensioning the string, and pulling the black band with the other..  I don't own a large enough clamp to clamp it to the table since it has such high sides.  The woodworker who made it suggested that he could add ears" or "wings" on either side of the base to clamp it with so I may ask him to make me another.  Otherwise, it works pretty well.

I was wondering how it worked. I suppose you pull on the black yarn to make the bobbin rotate? Won't the box slide over the table, unless it is clamped down?
