Front View of the miniSpinner
This one is equipped with the optional WooLee Winder
level-wind flyer, a terrific convenience for both spinning and
plying, since you don't have to stop to change hooks. Most miniSpinners
are sold with this flyer.
The speed control adjusts the flyer speed from zero
to about 1500 RPM. I have verified the speed with my laser
The direction switch selects whether the flyer
rotates clockwise or counterclockwise. The center position is
off. If you don't want to use the foot switch included with
the miniSpinner you can control
the miniSpinner with this toggle switch.
A foot switch is included. You plug the
foot switch into the foot switch jack. You can configure the
foot switch to operate in either "deadman" mode (press
down for on, release for off), or "tap-on/off"
The Scotch tension adjustment runs very
smoothly on a steel shaft in a plastic bushing. You can easily
adjust the friction to suit your preferences.
