AVL Warping Wheel

A brilliant piece of equipment for sectional warping without the hassle of winding loads of different bobbins (so no tension box or bobbin racks required). Each bout of warp is wound individually onto the warping wheel, and then wound off under tension onto the sectional warping beam (that’s a simplified explanation – there’s a good video on the AVL website which shows the process in detail). This wheel includes the optional extra of a cross-maker, which makes for easier threading.
I’ve used the wheel for a couple of years and have found it simple and easy to work with. It’s in good condition and is only for sale because of studio downsizing due to health issues.
Collection only, please, from near Bridport in West Dorset.

£685. I will consider a sensible offer, especially from someone who also buys the Leclerc Diana compu-dobby loom. (See DL4 in the Floor Loom section)
