Bulky Wonder Spinner (D0506200)
The one and only of it kind in the World that has Bobbin lead and Flyer lead.
At present it is set up for spinning using wonder tension. To ply simply move the motor to the extra tube on the left side of the frame. To use as Bobbin lead turn frame end for end and do the same with the bearing tubes and it will look like the Bulky Electric Spinner below.
Each one comes with 3 bobbins, 2.2 pounds of fiber capacity each, 2 Lazy Kates, and electronic foot controller. While talking with a customer one day, she said she was spinning lace weight with Babe's Bulky spinner. So I had to try it and you sure can.
For those who want a Electronic Hand Controller the NW Hand Controller will work on the Bulky Wonder. This will enable you to spin by just using your hands. Easily adjusted for speed. See On Line Store for price.
To Learn more the difference in the set up of Bobbin Lead and Flyer Lead look on the Assembly Instruction pages.

Electric Liten Spindle Charkha Wheel (A0504001)
We named it Babe's Liten Spindel, which in Swedish means "little spider."
Babe's Liten Spindel can help you spin silk so fine that it looks like the filaments in a spider's web. When spinning from the fold you'll be amazed as you draw back with the drafting hand and see the delicate fiber you've created.
Ratios: 13:1, 14:1, 16:1 and 20:1
Weighing just 2 pounds, 11 ounces, Babe's Liten Spindel is extremely portable. Simply set it on a table or on the floor to operate. It comes with:
Babe's Sure Foot, so it remains securely anchored during use. Small enough to be easily stowed away when not in use.
Babe's Liten Spindel is made with furniture PVC, a 12" wheelchair wheel with ball bearings, a 9" spindle, and a polyurethane drive band. We use a rounded point knitting needle for spindle. As a charkha wheel, it is one of the most simplest ones requiring no adjustments. Just setup and start spinning.Babe's Liten Spindel is abailable in a Right Hand or Left Hand Model.
When ordering be sure to say which hand you want to turn the wheel with.
