Default Digital Coil Winder out of a Printer

Looking at an old HP 500C Inkjet thought that it has most of the bascics to do a Coil Winder for thin wire bobins (30-38 Ga.).

Since I like to wind some audio tranies which usualy have some 3000 or more turns and don't have a winder with wire feed thought that this unsuded trash could make a nice tool for the purpose.

But i have to say that this seems to be a far fetched proposition for me when it comes to the digital interface.

Basic Functions:
1. Wire feed (out of the printer carriage)
2. Coil winder (out of the paper feed) 100/200 RPM. Variable?
3. Turns counter.
4. Start and finish position of layers.
5. Stop at end of layer (to add insulation)

Mechanically I see no problem that I could not solve.

Here is my question for those in the digital field.

What's involved in making this idea a reality?
