Named after the Flatiron rock formations in Boulder, Colorado, the flat-packed Schacht Flatiron Wheel becomes a rock solid, sturdy Saxony wheel when fully erected.
The Flatiron arrives with all the components to create a customisable wheel – choose any of the three tension systems, Scotch Tension, Double Drive or Irish Tension, and add the flyer on the left or the right – completely depending on your preference.
The unique design is fashioned from formed maple and Apple-ply. ApplePly is a strong and lightweight premium quality hardwood plyboard which machines beautifully without tearing or fuzzing.
With self-aligning bearings in the maidens, and a fully adjustable drive wheel, the whole system is sure to spin true. The clever quick release lever makes changing out bobbins trouble free.
Included with each Schacht Flatiron Spinning Wheel are a poly drive band, threading hook, three bobbins, medium and fast whorls, and double drive band material.
