Designed and engineered by ETTRICK. The wheel and flyer run on sealed ball bearings for smooth operation and ease of use.

The ultimate spinning experience.


Windwheel_Myrtle

ETTRICK "WINDWHEEL"

The Windwheel is a novel spinning machine. It is particularly light and portable.(3 - 3.5kg.)

When upright it stands at 800mm and the spindle is a convenient height of 650mm.
The Windwheel is available in Tasmanian Myrtle or Tasmanian Blackwood.
The highest quality materials are used throughout, and all wheels are thoroughly tested before dispatch.

The Windwheel spinning head rotates 6 times per treadle cycle.

The flyer wheel and pulley run on precision sealed ball bearings that require no lubrication.

The industrial duty drive belt is made of reinforced nylon, which has been selected for its strength and non-stretch qualities.

The Windwheel is sealed and lacquered to protect the timber from the grease and dirt found in fleece.

The Windwheel is supplied with 4 bobbins and a Lazy Kate.

Folding

By simply undoing a thumbscrew the Windwheel folds down to a compact 480 mm.

Packing

The compact size and shape of the Windwheel enables it to be sent by post.

For posting, the wheel is partly dismantled and all

components are packed in cushioning material for safe transport.

Re-assembly is straightforward - full instructions are supplied.
