1/2 - 3/4 - 1 inch Aluminum Yarn Guides
This Flyer requires a 3/4 front maiden. A new 3/4 bearing is shipped with the unit, All that is required is to remove on Philips head screw to replace. Doing so will allow you to use the larger Kiwi Jumbo or large single drive Ashford bobbins. Bobbins for this unit are around 4 3/8 inches or 112 millimeters in diameter. The smaller original bobbins can also be used.
Level Wind Systems Inc. is proud to offer it's Patent Pending Autowind flyer for the Ashford Kiwi Jumbo. This system is revolutionary for the industry and the first offering of it's kind. The self powered level wind flyer is totally self contained and makes treadling a breeze, as there is no extra drag introduced into the mechanics of the wheel. Turn it on and it does the rest, you can spin for hours without stopping. And finish with a beautiful level wound bobbin when you're complete. The way our systems wind will prevent your fiber from tangling when you're plying or winding off.
Our autowinders do not require special gear driven bobbins, oil or the need to move yarn guides at all. They are powered by two or three alkaline AAA batteries that will last for weeks to months at a time. We know you're going to love it:)
Benefits. Large interchangeable fiber guides, Self lubricating composite materials and all stainless steel hardware.
They are super easy to care for as you'll see in the photos, We have engineered these systems with large windows to keep those little pesky flyaway fibers out of the works. Its easy, just use a pair of tweezers or the like and remove them after a nice relaxing time of spinning.
