Ex Display Model
This equipment was put together for people to come along and try out here at Wentworth. For obvious reasons this is no longer an option, and so we're offering various wheels and looms as ex-display models. Each one has had very light use, with some never been used at all. There may be be light scuffs and marks, as they have been sat in the Equipment Sheds for a while, but they all work as normal.
The full manufacturers guarantee applies with the exception of any surface marks.
This wheel is in very good condition, still has the instruction pack in its sealed envelope. This traditional wheel was set up just as we went into lockdown.
The Ashford suggested retail price is £610 so its a discount on a discount.
How To Buy
Please complete your purchase online as normal and select the Click & Collect option. You'll be automatically notified when your wheel is ready for collection; we'll make sure it's set up, ready and waiting for you, with minimal interaction between you and our staff.
Unfortunately we're not able to offer this item via Mail Order.
Why is it so popular? The separate drive band and bobbin brake adjustment is easy to understand and simple to operate. The bobbins are quick and easy to change. Scotch tension and 3 speed flyer allow for a wide variety of yarn to be spun. Horizontal adjustment of the maiden bar allows perfect alignment with the 3 speed whorl. Ball bearings and large (22ins) wheel makes treadling smooth and effortless to maintain a steady speed. The wide legs give good stability especially when treadling at speed. The treadle is pivoted to allow a comfortable heel-toe action.
