BLACKBIRD (RETIRED; NO LONGER FOR SALE)
High capacity Irish tension, designed for the widest range of weights
A carbon fiber and 3D printed ABS electric spinning wheel. Irish tensioned and designed for a very wide range of weights. Capable of very low take up and high twist make it suitable for lace weight down to at least 35 wpi, while also being able to deliver the higher take up and torque for much heavier weights. Two speed ranges are possible; 0-750 rpm for heavy work or 0-1200 rpm for finer weights. Orifice is 20mm. Bobbin capacity is quite large at 24+ oz lace to fingering, and their design is very robust. The wheel, flyer, and bobbin weigh in just at 2.5lbs (1.13kg). Dimensions are 13"L x 8"W x 9"H (33x20x23cm).
