Modern Wheel

Modern Wheel

For many years we had requests for a spinning wheel that was
compact, functional, durable, available as a kit, and most of all,
with a price that would fit most everyone’s budget. In the late
1970’s we designed a wheel that we thought met all of the above
requirements. Time has proven us correct. The Clemes Kit Wheel
has been one of the most sought after wheels on the market for
years. Today we refer to it as the Clemes Modern Wheel.

The wheel is 16” in diameter with ball bearings for smooth
operation. The treadle is of the heel-toe design to allow starting and
stopping without having to touch the wheel. The flyer is dual belt
drive with a 3/8” orifice. The bobbins are of generous size for those
who like to spin yarns towards the heavier size or prefer not to
change bobbins as often.

This wheel is very easy to spin on. It is used by students as well as
accomplished spinners and will often be found in schools as well
as many studios.

The wheel comes with three bobbins. A lazy kate is available,
as well as a bulky adaptor and quill adaptor- making this one of
the most versatile wheels on the market today.

Shipping Weight is 25 lbs.
