The Mach III is smooth, quiet and ergonomic for pain-free production studio spinning. With comprehensive ratios on four head sizes to choose from - you can spin any weight of yarn from lace to super bulky art yarn.
This is your dream wheel.
The highly engineered, unique momentum based system feels effortless to treadle. This wheel practically spins itself! After you get the wheel started, it literally spins all by itself for a minute or two unless you put on the brakes. Just imagine the yards and yards you could spin without trying. You can use one, or both feet to treadle easily.
This wheel has a huge amount of ratios and options for spinning yarn. The standard 8oz (225g) flyer has five speeds:1:3.5, 1:5, 1:7, 1:11, and 1:20. That practically covers every type of yarn in one fell swoop.
This wheel is also modular. You choose the flyer and bobbin sizes, which are also compatible with the Spinolution Firefly base - their electric wheel. Simply unscrew the head from your mach, and take out your firefly for trips away.
The other options for this wheel include bobbin sizes that range from 16oz (450g) 32oz (900g) and 64oz (1.814 kg!!). Yes, 1814 grams of yarn on one bobbin.
The bobbin system is also unique and ingenious. No fiddling around with tension bands, or unpoppling flyers to change bobbins- simply pull off the separate orifice bar, held on magnetically, and remove your bobbin. Easy! Each bobbin also has a wonderful secret- specially made holes to thread your leader yarn into, holding it fast. Which means no more slipping leaders when starting your spinning.
The wheel has an open hook design with non-catch pegs. This allows all yarns to wind onto the bobbin without snagging. There is also a typical tube orifice option available as an accessory.
Quite simply put- this is a serious wheel for serious lovers of spinning. It is soild, made from furniture grade birch, warp resistant, with ultra quiet operation. Choose to add the beautiful wildflower etched design to your wheel for extra loveliness.
I am so thrilled to be able to offer this wheel for spinners in the UK and europe.
