Schacht Flatiron Saxony Spinning wheel


The Flatiron, with its brilliant, compact packaging can be shipped anywhere with ease!

This listing is for the second generation model with the most up-to-date features!

You can set this wheel up in a few hours.

The Flatiron is customizable, with the option to have the flyer on the left or the right. There are self-aligning bearings in the maidens, and completely adjustable drive wheel, the Flatiron system is sure to spin true. The ingenious quick-release lever makes switching bobbins hassle-free.

The Flatiron can be set up in all three tensioning systems - Scotch, Double-drive, Irish; combined with Schacht’s thoughtfully-designed fine threaded tension control. All of Schacht’s current whorls can be used with the Flatiron.

Please note: as of 2/11/2017 the Bulky Flyer Kit is in test mode and due to be available later this year, including a front maiden available if you already own one for your other Schacht wheels.
