Ask me about layaway for items in my shop if this would work for you.
I have these wheels on order since March and am high in the queue for shipment when Schacht is open and able.
Recent Review: ******"Amazing wheel by an amazing seller! Love it love it. It was shipped with very fast delivery, and I could not be more pleased. I've already been back to her shop to buy more stuff! Thank you; I'm so glad I found you."***** T. P. 6/17
The Flatiron is Schacht's newest and most revolutionary wheel yet. It packs down to a very portable box (that fits in the seat of a Prius believe it or not...) You can set it up either right or left hand flyer. Spins in Irish tension, Scotch Tension and Double Drive. Be one of the first in your spinning group to acquire one of these incredible wheels!
Two ways to buy:
1. Drop shipped to you directly from Schacht - Lead time on wheels shipped from them is typically 3 - 4 weeks, depending on how busy they are and if their production has recovered from the Covid-19 closure.
Flatiron & Bulky Plyer Flyer Kit Combo: With purchase of the Flatiron Wheel (either way - drop ship or immediate ship), you can use your coupon for anything in either of my shops (see below for details).
Made in USA (Colorado), Schacht products are known for their extremely high quality (My home wheel is a Matchless and I can attest to that!). Not only are they durable and easy to use, but they're the best looking wheels out there. Anything but traditional, the Flatiron Spinning Wheel rises from a flat-packed box much like Boulder’s iconic Flatirons tilted up from a once horizontal position. Sit down and feel the majesty of this rock-solid wheel. The elegant design of the formed maple, apple-ply body calls upon the same drama that makes the famous Flatirons so striking. This unique Saxony style wheel, with its ingenious, compact packaging can be shipped anywhere with ease! With nearly all the tools necessary for assembly in the box, The Flatiron comes with everything you need to spin. Just add fiber.
The superb Flatiron spinning wheel is customizable; you can build it to your preference, with either the flyer on the left or the right. With self-aligning bearings in the maidens, and a fully adjustable drive wheel, the whole system is sure to spin true. The clever quick release lever makes changing out bobbins trouble free. Options for customizing your wheel will be up soon. Get a jump on this pre-order to get one of the first Flatirons!
The Flatiron can be set up in all three tensioning systems combined with our thoughtfully designed fine threaded tension control. Whorls and Flyer are all interchangeable with Schacht’s other wheels allowing you to spin the yarns of your dreams–from frog’s-hair fine to art yarn. AND there will be the ever popular bulky flyer capability.
