Schacht’s NEW Saxony Style Flatiron Spinning Wheel can be set up with the flyer on the left or the right, has 3 tension modes (Double Drive, Scotch Tension or Bobbin lead), a thoughtfully designed fine threaded tension control, fully adjustable drive wheel, and self aligning bronze bearings in the flyer maidens. The bobbins are easy to change with their clever quick release lever. The drive wheel is 22.5 inches in diameter. The Flatiron Wheel weighs just 15 lbs and ships packed flat! Bobbins, Whorls and Flyer are all interchangeable with Schacht’s other wheels and there will be a bulky flyer capability. Like all Schacht products, the Flatiron wheel was thoughtfully designed and beautifully crafted. See all the details on the new Flatiron Spinning Wheel on our website.
