The Flatiron spinning Wheel rises from a flat-packed box much like Boulder’s iconic Flatirons tilted up from a once-horizontal position. The elegant design of the formed maple ply body calls upon the same drama that makes the Flatirons so striking. This unique Saxony-style wheel is anything but traditional, much like the Schacht’s hometown of Boulder, Colorado.
The superb Flatiron Spinning Wheel is customizable; you can build it 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 Spinning Wheel can be set up in all three tension systems (Scotch tension, double drive, and bobbin lead).
* Treadle design: double treadle
* Drive band systems: Scotch tension, double drive, or bobbin lead
* Orifice height: 26"
* Orifice diameter: 0.375"
* Wheel weight: 15lbs
