Microcontroller based inductor winder? Answered

 Is there any way, and I'm sure there is but I don't know how to do it, to make an inductor winder that is programable. Any type of microcontroller brand would work, be it arduino, parallax, pickaxe, whatever. Basically what I would need is a code, and a schematic that would drive two servos, one continuos rotation to do the actual winding and one to move the inductor back and forth, to keep an even winding going. The code would have to dictate how many turns the servo does in order to get the desired number of windings. It can even have to be reprogramed for every inductor from the PC, to keep it more simple.
--Thanks
        P.S. Sorry if this question was difficult to understand, I didn't know how to put into words what I                           had pictured in my mind...
