MAGPIE V2

FOUR WHEELS IN ONE! 

-- Lace to Locks --

Made from carbon fiber, T6061 aluminum and 3D printed ABS plastic, Magpie V2 is the most powerful Daedalus Spinning Wheel to date, capable of taking the handspinner from the finest lace to the loftiest locks. This e-spinner has more than enough speed and torque for the most advanced spinner, yet it will also spin flawlessly when dialed down to its slowest speeds. Although Magpie V2 is the largest wheel in the flock, it's still far more portable than a traditional treadle wheel.


The Magpie V2 has two flyer options, the Standard and the Art Flyer, and both can be used in either Scotch or Irish tension. The Standard Flyer can reach speeds of up to 2,550 RPM when set in Scotch tension— ideal for the lowest, most gentle yarn takeup—with most experienced owners achieving 100+ wraps per inch in this setup. For those spinning projects where you need a  firmer takeup, try Irish tension! It’s great for those plying projects that require extra pull onto the bobbin, and it’s a super setup for spinning light and lofty singles and stand-alone slub yarns. Since we also include a larger urethane drive belt that fits the larger bobbin whorl, you’ll have your choice of spinning at full-speed range or at a lower-geared range (when even greater torque is needed) in both Scotch and Irish tensions. You’ll find that the Standard Flyer provides you with innumerable spinning possibilities, from whisper light to even the heaviest of tension jobs. The Art Flyer can reach speeds of up to 1,600 RPM. Here again, the Scotch tension drive system is great for light to moderate takeup, though the Art Flyer excels in Irish tension, where there are also two speed ranges available, providing the torque needed to make your bulkiest art yarn projects turn out feather light). With its massive dual-motor system and gearing appropriate for heavy work, the 32 mm orifice swallows even the wildest textured yarns you can dream up, without snagging.

RPM SPEED

These RPM (rotation per minute) stats were recorded from a typical Magpie V2 after a short break-in period. Top speed will increase around 3-4% from these numbers after approximately 100-200 hours of use. Actual performance figures vary between wheels by less than 1.5% (30 RPM at top speed), due to slight variations in components and build. Please use this as a general guideline.
