|Schacht Flatiron Spinning Wheel
The rock solid Flatiron spinning wheel is customizable; you can build it to your preference, with either the flyer on the left or the right. With self-aligning bearings in the maidens, and a fully adjustable drive wheel, the whole system is sure to spin true. The clever quick release lever makes changing out bobbins trouble free.
The Flatiron can be set up in all three tensioning systems combined with fine threaded tension control. All of the current Schacht whorls can be used with the Flatiron, allowing you to spin the yarns of your dreams-from frog's-hair fine to art yarn.
The body is formed using maple, apple-ply.
