Beautifully crafted, our Saxony wheel captures an enduring sense of history with state of-the-art woodworking techniques. Designed in conjunction with Rick and Marge Reeves, the Saxony wheel incorporates traditional design in a wheel that’s a superb spinner. Available with both Scotch tension and double drive modes. Our Schacht-Reeves Saxony wheel is availabe in 24” and 30” models, as a double or single treadle, and in ash or cherry. Flyer on the left is standard; right-mounted flyer is available by special request.
Each wheel comes with three bobbins, two whorls, a Lazy Kate, and threading hook. Whorl ratios: 12:1 to 24:1.
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 prior Reeves-made wheels. Replacement wooden bobbins for older Reeves spinning wheels can be ordered from Hill Creek Fiber Studio, (800) 874-9328.
We have one of these beautiful wheels in our studio. It spins magnificently.
Note: Much as we love this wheel we do not keep it in stock. We will order it as soon as you let us know you want it and will contact you with shipping information. You can expect about six weeks from order to shipping. Please be sure to indicate whether you want the flyer on the right or left side of the wheel.
