Each type of Robin wheel comes with 3 pre-tested bobbins, all handmade of cherry and maple.
Each bobbin has ratios of 4.5:1, 5.5:1, 7:1 and 9:1. The bobbins can hold 6-8oz. of material.
Each bobbin has teflon bearings, for smooth spinning. All wheels have graceful arched legs made with contrasting woods. And all wheels have a full treadle, or a double treadle can be ordered at additional cost. Each wheel is balanced for ease of use. Each wheel also
comes with a sturdy urethane drive band that has microscopic teeth to grip the wheel securely.
