    Great value

    • affordable
    • easy learning ratios
    • perfect starter wheel
    • double treadle
    • natural (unlacquered) finish

    This is an excellent beginner wheel, due to its easy learning ratios, double treadle, and affordable price. The double treadle and ball bearings allow for easy treadling and "hands-free" start. Treadles are mounted on polyurethane hinges for a smooth, quiet, and comfortable heel-toe action. The stretchy drive cord does not require any adjustment as you change from one ratio to another and always maintains the correct tension. The scotch tension allows easy control of the drafting process. The central flyer is convenient for right- and left-handed spinners. The wheel is easy and quick to assemble with the Allen key supplied, and the robust construction makes this an ideal wheel for individuals, schools, and clubs. The wheel itself is made of MDF, a high-density durable wood product that can be painted or decorated.
