Please Note: This is an ex-display model. It has been assembled and has had light use. As such it may show slight superficial markings but there is no damage to the woodwork. It comes with all standard accessories but may be shipped in a replacement box to the original packaging. It is sold as seen with all normal guarantees, the same as if you were buying new.
The Prelude has the look of an antique wheel, with the high degree of wood turning which the Kromskis are famous for, though it also has all the little touches that the modern spinner expects. We class this wheel as semi transportable as it has the feature of being able to turn the mother of all in line with the frame to make an easy to carry package. If you want a wheel that does everything, takes very little space and is easily carried this does the job. The Prelude is a single drive Scotch tension wheel. The drive band is self adjusting plastic for ease of use.
The Prelude is easy to treadle , easy to transport and has an 18" diameter wheel (the same size as the Minstrel) for excellent ratios. If you like you can spin the mother-of-all in line with the bench for a more compact package when moving the wheel. The Prelude is made of European alder and birch. This is the first single drive Scotch tension wheel produced by the Kromskis.
