Instead of a single treadle as on the standard S10 wheel, the S1ODT is equipped with a double treadle (DT). This double treadle works like a bicycle, both feet go in opposite directions and allows for light, relaxed, two foot treadling. It has proven to be an ideal wheel for beginners and experts alike. Sturdily constructed, it is suitable for production spinners. The single hole in the wheel ensures that it always stops in the place where you stop.
Louet wheels treadle lightly, are easy to learn on and can be modified to satisfy the expert spinners.
The orifice on this wheel is sufficiently large; 1/2", as are the bobbins (180-250gr capacity); to allow you to create novelty yarns.
The fly wheel is 20" in diameter.
A two bobbin lazy kate is incuded.
Each wheel has a single belt bobbin drive with an adjustable flyer brake to regulate the tension.
All bobbins have a sheave with three settings on one side. The ratios are: 1: 5.5, 1: 7.5 and 1:10.5.
This 8 kg (18 lb) wheel is made of laminated hardwood with a "birch" exterior finish.
We use maintenance-free ball bearings in the main hub and at the footman connection. (No lubrication is required). Minor assembly required, tools and instructions are included.
Available accessories: Skein-winder with a foldable cross, Wide Flyer, Bulky Bobbins, High Speed Spinning Set and additional Bobbins.
