The Sidekick is Schacht's newest spinning wheel. She's designed to fold easily, yet be a solid spinner. Here are some of the Sidekick’s features:
Folds to 21 1/2" h x 8 1/4" w x 15" d.
Integrated storage of bobbins, flyer, and whorls for transport. Lightweight at 13 pounds.
13 3/4" drive wheel allows for ratios from 4.25 to 15.25.
Long, comfortable treadles. Uses the same bobbins, whorls, and flyer as the Schacht Matchless and Ladybug wheels. The Sidekick can be purchased without the bobbin-flyer assembly.
25" orifice height for comfortable spinning. Employs Scotch tension with precise control knob. The drive wheel spins on ball bearings. The flyer turns on self-aligning bearings. Drive band tension adjuster allows for all whorls to be used with one drive band. The Sidekick comes with 3 travel bobbins, fast and medium whorls, threading hook, and adjustable carrying strap.
The new travel bobbin was designed especially for the Sidekick, and is compatible with the Ladybug and Matchless spinning wheels. With molded plastic flanges, the travel bobbin is durable and affordable.
