Schacht 50th Anniversary Limited Edition Cherry Wheels. IN STOCK NOW! The Matchless is very responsive, easy to adjust, and I believe that the self-aligning bronze bearings at the front and back of the flyer help me to get much more spinning done in less time. In my opinion, the Schacht Matchless wheel is truly matchless!
Schacht Spinning Wheels have both Scotch Tension and Double Drive. With their wide range of optional ratios (4:1 to 27:5) they are suitable for beginners as well as experienced spinners. The 19.5 inch drive wheel and the flyer shaft are supported by self aligning bronze bearings for precise action. Each flyer is individually balanced and the bobbins and flyer whorls are trued on center for optimal performance. The flyer whorls have special square holes in the center which makes mounting them on the flyer shaft very quick, and they'll never loosen whether you're spinning S or Z. The flyer hooks are made of stainless steel. The rear legs of the wheel have non marring rubber feet and the front legs are adjustable to accommodate uneven floors. Treadling on the generously sized treadle(s) is light and comfortable. This Schacht Matchless double treadle wheel has a split treadle which operates as a true double treadle wheel. It has a very positive smooth action.
Wheels are made of beautiful cherry and finished with a hand rubbed Danish oil. Minimal set up time required. Wheels come standard with 2 whorls (ratios of 9:1, 11:1 and 13:1, 15.5:1), 4 bobbins, Lazy Kate, Carry Strap, Threading Hook, 2 Drive Bands, and Instruction Booklet.
We will include a Schacht 50th Anniversary Tote Bag with your wheel along with the Schacht 50th Anniversary Catalog which has Schacht's history and lots of photos.
