About the 3-D Printed Spin-e-Kube Parts
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 ash. There are 4 hooks with the flyer.
End Supports/ Maidens –
These are 3d Printed PLA plastic with sealed bearings to prevent wear. No grease or oiling required. One end is fixed to the base, and the other end slides with a retaining clip.
each of the 3 included bobbins holds about 8 oz of spun fiber. The center shaft is made from CPVC and glued to the PLA.
About the Wood Base
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 and in left or right handed variations.

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.
