Kromski Fantasia Spinning Wheel - Unfinished

The newest of the Kromski collection. Yes, a thoroughly modern wheel in every aspect but the concept and design are obviously Kromski. What is not obvious is a new single drive flyer design. The whorl is "changeable" for different speeds; to change the bobbins (all Kromski bobbins fit the Fantasia), the front of the flyer simply pulls off - no drive band to deal with in this adaptation of the original Kromski Quick Change Flyer. Very fast bobbin change. The wheel and the flyer spin on sealed bearings for an exceptionally soft feel.

Features:
  • Wood Wheel Frame & Base
  • Strong and durable premium MDF wheel
  • Matte finish metal carrying handle
  • Wheel Diameter : 18 inches (46cm)
  • Orifice Circumference : 3/8 in. (10mm)
  • Standard Whorl Ratios: 5 and 8:1
  • Durable brass bearings on treadles
  • Hushed plastic bearings in bobbins
  • Single Drive with Scotch Tension
  • Double Treadle
  • On board Lazy Kate (2 bobbin capacity)
  • Threading Hook
  • Spinning Wheel Oil
  • Elastic Drive Band
  • Total Wheel weight : 12.5 lbs. (5.7kg)

    Wonderful

    Posted by Hannah on Feb 1st 2017

    As someone who's been spinning for a year but never laid a finger on a wheel until now, I have to say I'm surprised at the simplicity of the function on this guy. It spins intuitively, the setup for the flyer and the bobbin and the whorl is easy to sort out and adjust, and so is the tension. It was easy to put together (assuming you read the directions carefully, which in my excitement I did not) and the unfinished wheel leaves so many avenues for personalizing your tools. The ash takes finish like a champ and the look is just marvelous. The one thing I was kind of taken aback by was that the wheel itself is particle board. I read the descriptions, yes, but it just didn't occur to me that that was what I was getting. Regardless, it took the finish wonderfully and the overall effect is both modern and rustic at the same time and I love it. Ten out of ten would recommend for a first wheel. You'll be able to get whatever you want to out of it,.
