You can choose a wood base is made from Poplar, Oak, or Walnut. Poplar can also be stained a walnut color or a purple color. The Spinner colors are available in metallic shades of Red, Orange, Yellow, Green. Blue, Pink, Purple, Brown, Black, White, Copper, Silver, or Rainbow.
PLA is a plant based plastic, and is available in many colors. We use silk PLA which gives the Spin-e-Kube its’ metallic appearance.The main yoke of the flyer is 3d printed, but the center of the flyer is a copper shaft, with a ½ inch orifice. This is perfect for most knitting and crochet size yarns. The Flyer arms are made of wood. There are 4 small PLA hooks included.End Supports/ Maidens are 3d Printed PLA plastic with sealed bearings to prevent wear. No grease or oiling required.Each machine has 3 included bobbins,Irish tension holds about 8 oz of spun fiber. The center shaft is made from CPVC and glued to the PLA. By securely attaching the PLA spinner parts to a sturdy wood base we minimize the wheel travelling or vibrating. This is also accomplished by the rubber feet on the bottom. This ensures a smooth spin and prevents the wheel from “walking” off the table. Our wood bases are from Shapard’s Lumberyard and are available in many wood varieties. Bases are expected to contain areas with knots, streaks, and the occasional wood crack, insect hole, sawmark, or ding. These are considered part of the unique design of your base and will not affect the mechanics of the spinner. Please message us if you have specific base requirements or to make a special request. 1 year limited warranty included. Optional Accessories – A battery pack,foot switch, wood care, and carry case can be found on amazon.

Weight - 6-12 lbs, varies by wood type. Please contact us if you want an exact weight for your wheel.
About the motor and electronics – Our motor is a permanent magnet motor that reaches a maximum speed of about 1400 rpm. It is expected to last at least 1 year under normal daily spinning conditions. The components are tested and assembled in house, and require no maintenance, as they are sealed inside and attached to the base.
