Good wheel to learn on, I hate it with my whole heart

I've had one of these guys for a really long time and overall It's been a good wheel to learn on but it has this one particular problem that I find to be incredibly frustrating: the wheel is not securely aligned, so the drive band pops off every few minutes or so while I'm spinning and I have to stop to put it back on. I hate this spinning wheel so much.

Product Details

 


The Prelude Spinning Wheel is Kromski's smallest single-drive Saxony wheel, with an 18" diameter for compact portability in the outstanding craftmanship of the antique Saxony style. Easy assembly and a multitude of attributes make this perfect for both beginners and lifetime use. This multi-speed/ratio wheel features Scotch Tension and is available in unfinished, finished clear, walnut, and mahogany. Your wheel includes a Built-In Lazy Kate (two bobbin capacity), 3 bobbins, Spinning Wheel Oil, Wrench, and a Threading Hook.

Jumbo Flyer kits are available to upgrade your Prelude. These expand the spinners range in two ways.  First, the type of yarn created can vary from lace-weight to super bulky art yarn because of the larger orifice on the jumbo flyer. Subsequently, the jumbo bobbin allows spinners twice the  capacity of the regular Kromski bobbin.  A regular Kromski bobbin already offers 50% greater space than most standard bobbins in the industry with a generous 4.2 ounce capacity.  Jumbo bobbins double that, essentially allowing you to spin two regular bobbins worth without a bobbin change!  This means longer, continual drafts for skeins with greater yardage.

  • Built-In Lazy Kate (2 bobbin capacity)
