Marvin the paranoid android from the original TV series of Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy
Marvin the Meteor coil winder
Marvin even has a brain, although perhaps not the size of a planet. It has more sophisticated controller than our existing Meteor winder, which just has manual controls and a foot pedal. The newer model has preset adjustable ramp, speed, idle, and also a reverse wind setting, which is very handy and removes much of the human element from the winding. Let’s hope he isn’t bad tempered like his namesake !
