QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

Ask a Question
  • I have a joy double treadle what is the best place to have the drive band on Ispin fine wool singles most of the time Thankyou

    Your Joy 2 has 4 Ratio settings.

    14:1 (14 turns of the spinning wheel and flyer per 1 treadle) - use the smaller groove
    11:1 (11 turns of the spinning wheel and flyer per 1 treadle) - use the next groove up
    8:1 (8 turns of the spinning wheel and flyer per 1 treadle) - go up a groove again
    6:1 (6 turns of the spinning wheel and flyer per 1 treadle) - use the bigger groove

    When Spinning coarse fibres or thick yarns usee the slowest flyer speed of 6:1, for fine fibres and yarns step it up to the faster speed(s).  You may have to have a play around until you get the right set up.

    I hope you find this information useful.
