The S17 is a single treadle wheel is designed with the budget conscious spinner in mind! Smooth ball bearing operation like all our wheels, easy treadling, and a well balanced wheel that won’t disappoint!
Effective Fall of 2010 the S17 is in a new version. It is no longer a kit, but partially assembled, comparable to our other classic wheels, the final assembling is quick and easy. The bobbins will also be assembled.
The wood is sanded and the edges are rounded. It only needs a finishing with lacquer, stain or wax.
Louet has created an instructional video on the assembly of the S17. It is available throught this link S17 Video
Because the back post will be 32 mm thick, the S17 skein winder will not fit anymore, but our new stand alone skein winder will solve that problem.
A great wheel at a really great price!
Wheels are made of laminated hardwood with a "birch" exterior finish.
