Description

The Schacht-Reeves wheel is available in 30″ models, as a double- or single-treadle wheel, in ash or cherry, with flyer on the left or the right.

 

Our Saxony-style wheel combines an enduring sense of history with state-of-the-art woodworking techniques. Designed in conjunction with Rick and Marge Reeves, the Schacht-Reeves wheel carries on the tradition of their famous spinning wheels.

 

The Schacht-Reeves wheel is available in 30″ models, as a double- or single-treadle wheel, in ash or cherry. Order your wheel with flyer on the left or right.

Each wheel comes with 3 bobbins, 2 whorls, a Schacht-Reeves kate, and a Schacht-Reeves threading hook. See the Specs tab for spinning ratios.

A note on bobbins: The Schacht-Reeves flyer shaft is 5/16″ in diameter versus the original Reeves 1/4″ diameter. This means that the current Schacht bobbins can’t be used on Reeves-made wheels. Replacement wooden bobbins for older Reeves spinning wheels can be ordered from Hill Creek Fiber Studio, (800) 874-9328.
