  • 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 and Ladybug wheels.
  • The Sidekick can be purchased without the bobbin-flyer assembly.
  • 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.

Sidekick bag

 

Our new padded Sidekick Bag is just the thing to easily take your Sidekick Spinning Wheel with you. Made of rugged recycled polyester fabric with a heavy-duty zipper and bound interior seams, the Sidekick Bag is designed to fit your Sidekick Spinning Wheel safely and snugly inside. There’s ample room, too, for 3 bobbins and our Collapsible Lazy Kate.

Whorls

Additional whorls – slow, high and super high speeds – are available to expand the range of spinning ratios and make your spinning even more enjoyable.
(Note: the extra slow speed whorl is not recommended for use on the Sidekick. There are issues with the fit due to the size of the whorl.)
