The best way to describe this wheel is a Victoria version of the S51DT. Bobbins, flyer and the Scotch tension are the same as on the Victoria.
There are four ratios, which are: 1:6, 1:8.5, 1:12.5, 1:19. An optional high speed set, which is also the same set as the Victoria uses, provides an extra 1:27 ratio and make it easier to treadle the 1:19 on the Julia.
A removable insert provides two orifice sizes (12mm and 8mm). All rotating parts run on ball bearings for smooth operation, while the unit itself is constructed out of beech and birch plywood, smoothly lacquered.
The Julia comes standard with a stand-alone 3 bobbin Lazy Kate with an adjustable brake.
Wheels are made of laminated hardwood with a "birch" exterior finish.
The base with treadles can be easily disassembled from the upright with the main wheel (unit does not fold) for easy transportation.
