THE ALL NEW KIWI 2 SPINNING WHEEL

Richard has included great new features on this popular wheel but still keeping it excellent value for money.
The new features are:
Sliding hook flyer with14mm (½”) hooks as standard
3 large 90mm (3½”) bobbins with precision bearings and 130gm (4-5oz) capacity.
Built-in Lazy Kate.
Nylon 2 piece con rod universal joints for smooth treadling.
Polyurethane con rod joints snap into place. No screws required.
Treadle boards now 25mm (1”) apart for more comfortable and treadling.
Polyurethane hinges for effortless and maintenance-free treadling.
New 6 spoke wheel.
Easy bolt and barrel nut assembly.

This wheel, named after the iconic native NZ bird, is so simple, smooth and easy to use. With its easy learning ratios (5.5 and 7.25:1), double treadle and affordable price it’s an excellent wheel for a beginner. The double treadle and ball bearings allow for easy treadling and “hands-free” start. The treadles are hinged to allow a comfortable heel-toe action. The stretchy drive cord does not require any adjustment as you change from one ratio to another and always maintains the correct tension. The scotch tension allows easy control of the drafting process. The central flyer is convenient for right and left-handed spinners. The wheel is easy and quick to assemble with the Allen key supplied and the robust construction makes this an ideal wheel for individuals, schools and clubs. The wheel itself is made of MDF, a high-density durable wood product that can be painted or decorated. It is also available lacquered.
Accessories:
High speed kit with ratios 11 and 14:1
Jumbo flyer kit with ratios 4 and 5:1
