The Schacht Sidekick Spinning Wheel WITH FREE Orange Sidekick Bag - IN STOCK - SALE 704.95 W/O or 824.95 Complete SAVE 53.06 to 62.05 - *FREE US Ship I was blown away by the Schacht Sidekick Wheel. In my opinion, it is the very best wheel for travel and would also serve as an only wheel. The sidekick wheel is compact and sets up quickly and easily. The treadling is easy and smooth. The Sidekick is responsive, rugged and lightweight. Two bag options are available, the Schacht Sidekick padded shoulder bag and the Sidekick Take Along Bag with backpack straps and carry strap.
The Sidekick's features:
Folds to approx. 21 ½ in. x 15 in. x 8 ¼ in. Integrated storage of bobbins, flyer, and whorls for transport. Lightweight at 13 pounds. The 13 3/4 inch drive wheel allows for ratios between 4.25 to 15.25 with optional whorls. Long, comfortable treadles. Uses the same bobbins, whorls and flyer as the Schacht Matchless and Ladybug wheels. 25 inch orifice height for comfortable spinning. Employs Scotch tension with precise control knob. The drive wheel spins on ball bearings. The flyer turns on self-aligning bearings. Drive band tension adjuster allows for all whorls to be used with one drive band.
The Sidekick can also be purchased without the bobbin-flyer assembly and whorls. If you already have a Matchless or Ladybug, the bobbins and whorls will work on your Sidekick.
The complete Sidekick comes with regular flyer, 3 travel bobbins, 2 whorls, poly drive belt, threading hook, carrying strap and manual.
If you prefer wood bobbins, we have an option below to substitute wood bobbins.
Also available: The Sidekick Bulky Plyer Flyer Package can be purchased and added at any time. If you already have a Schacht Bulky Flyer and want to use it on the Sidekick you will just need to purchase the Sidekick Bulky Maiden. Wheels are Brand New in the box.
If you choose the Frabjous Fiber Braids, email us with the color you would prefer.
