The AVL Warping Wheel is a wonder tool. It provides the ability to warp sections without a tension box, spool rack or cone rack -- all from a single cone! Sectional warping has never been so fast and efficient. It will allow you to warp directly from different size cones (the ones that have been sitting in your studio for a while now!) or from just about any other form your warp threads are in. The Wheel adjusts from a circumference of two to three yards, allowing you to put on warps of up to 25 yards. Made from beautiful ash hardwood and birch plywood for durability. Includes high capacity spools and revolution counter.
3rd Generation New Features
Upgraded Raddle Assembly
Metal brackets havee been added to make opening and closing the raddle top faster and easier.
Digital Revolution Counter
Improved reliability and the digital interface makes keeping track of rotaions stress free!
Placement of the handle has been moved from the wheel drum out to the spokes thus giving the user better leverage when winding.
Increased Rigidity and Stability
Lap joints ("v"-shaped) have been added to key intersections making the arm that supports winding onto the beam much sturdier.
