The Sidekick is Schacht’s travel spinning wheel. It’s designed to fold easily, yet be a solid spinner. Features:

  • Folds to 21.5″ h x 8.25″ w x 15″ d.
  • Integrated storage of bobbins, flyer, and whorls for transport.
  • Lightweight at 13 pounds.
  • 13.7″ drive wheel
  • Ratios from 4:1 to 13:1.
  • Long, comfortable treadles.
  • Uses the same bobbins, whorls, and flyer as the Schacht Matchless, Flatiron, and Ladybug wheels. The Sidekick can be purchased without the bobbin-flyer assembly if you already own one of these wheels. We do not stock the "without" version, available by special order. 
  • 25″ orifice height for comfortable spinning.
  • Employs Scotch tension with precise control knob.
  • The drive wheel spins on ball bearings. The flyer turns on self-aligning bearings.
  • Drive band tension adjuster allows for all whorls to be used with one drive band.
  • The Sidekick comes with 3 travel bobbins, fast and medium whorls, threading hook, adjustable carrying strap, and durable carry bag.
