Wow this wheel is so beautiful. The craftsmanship is amazing. I wish I would have learned on this wheel because it is so much easier to spin on than my first. The customer service was great! Really some of the nicest people! The online videos answered any questions I had on set-up or troubleshooting. I was impressed with the lazy kate and the huge amount of fiber included. I also appreciated getting to speak with Bill who makes these amazing wheels. If I had to give any suggestion, it would be to beef-up the shipping packaging. With such a nice wheel, I would have used a lot more bubble wrap!
It’s a wonderful wheel! My Revolution package arrive in great condition . All parts were there, including roving, three bags full! Following along with the video, I had no difficulty assembling my Revolution wheel. I’m a novice spinner but my new wheel is so easy spin on. I love working with her! (I named her Proud Mary because she’s a big wheel keeps on turning, Roving! Roving! Roving down the river )
So far so good, things can only get better. The wheel arrived in a securely packed box, with 2 boxed standard bobbins, the Jumbo Flyer w/ Bobbin & the 3 standard post tensioned Lazy Kate each in it’s own smaller box. It was easy to assemble NoTools required. The parts needed for assembly could be found quickly each in its own zip baggie stashed in a Paradise Fibers drawstring Bag. The wheel treadles smoothly, the flyers & bobbins both Standard & Jumbo turn/rotate/spin freely. I find that the Metal Spring yarn Guide that came on the Standard Flyer has a tendency to snag the yarn, it does not allow the yarn to pull through smoothly, especially if the yarn is thicker or has any over twist (very frustrating for a new spinner). The Jumbo Flyer has a nice Smooth large diameter yarn guide through which the yarn passes smoothly. The Wood used is Beautiful, I love the Ewenice engravings, I would liked to have a wooden Scotch Tension Peg, & a wooden handle Orifice Hook to match the Knobs, Flyer Posts, Footmen & Wheel inlay . . . the wheel was too expensive for the Plastic Parts :( over All I am Happy with my Purchase
If you are ever at last ready to have THE spinning wheel you've been trying to find for years, you may want to take a serious look at the Revolution. I've been spinning fiber for quite a few years now, and the precision, balance, and construction of this wheel is utterly flawless. Simply put, the Revolution wheel produces the results I want. It has an innovative design with great attention to sturdiness, flexibility, and effortless treadling. One of the things I was most happy about is that it's not a finicky or fussy wheel and doesn't require constant adjustments or coaxing. And aside from the practical advantages, it's really beautiful. Just a couple of the many aspects of it I love are: * You can switch out a drive band so quickly and easily. * You can switch from a standard bobbin to a jumbo or plying bobbin without having to remove or change the MOA. * All three tensions work equally well (bobbin-lead, flyer-lead, and double drive) and are easy to switch from one to another. * The use of high-end materials in its construction are very apparent. * On a more cerebral level, I can quickly attain the pleasant, spinning Zen-frame-of-mind we spinners seek. Be advised it would not make for an optimal travel-wheel, despite my temptation to show it off. It is larger and heavier than other wheels I have owned, but this speaks well of its sturdiness and durability. Thank you Paradise Fibers; you've knocked this one out of the park!
I got the Revolution package several years ago. It is an amazing wheel. Spins everything. So easy to spin on - no learning curve whatsoever. Bill was great when I had a problem with one of the parts and it was replaced immediately. Whenever I go to workshops everyone wants to know what it is and comments on how pretty it is. I highly recommend it.
