Windings are too tight

I'm new around these parts. 
I recently purchased an X winder second hand and ive been playing around with it. 

Obviously im learning as i go, but one of the biggest issues that im having now is that my mandrel, even though its wrapped in receipt paper and packing tape, my windings are impossible to remove from the mandrel. 

Am i missing something? Is my brake too tight? From the video i watched there was no struggle in removing them part from the mandrel.

  • Once you apply the receipt paper and the packing tape, just try to remove that first without any winding. If you can't remove jsut the paner and the tape by itself, you won't be able to remove the fully winded part either.
