The Traditional Double Drive Spinning Wheel

The world’s most popular wheel with both double drive and scotch tension systems.

The only difference between this wheel and the Traditional is the drive belt system. The double drive produces a fine, firm-twist yarn particularly suited for fine wools and exotic fibre. One adjustment controls both drive band and bobbin take-up. Easily converted to Scotch tension with the option attached to the wheel. This option and the three (3) speed flyer allow for a wide variety of yarn to be spun.
Horizontal adjustment of the maiden bar allows perfect alignment with the 3 speed whorl.

With ball bearings and its large drive wheel treadling is smooth and effortless and the treadling speed is easily controlled. The wide legs give good stability especially when speed spinning. The treadle is pivoted to allow a comfortable heel-toe action.

This is a robust wheel that is very versatile. With its wide range of accessories you can spin any fibre you choose.
