I have a Kromski Prelude spinning wheel for sale. It is in very good, used shape. There are a couple of scratches on it, nothing major, and one of the bobbins came to me with a piece of wood cracked off of it, but it still flys just fine. I have Lupus and Rheumatoid Arthritis and cannot spin anymore, it causes me too much pain. $350 plus shipping OBO, or if you live close enough, we can meet to pick up. My zip is 25979 to mapquest directions. I am also adding a 4oz. bag of spinning fiber of my choice in jewel tones. I've spun 2-3lbs of fiber on it.

Here is a description:

Features:


The Prelude is the newest spinning wheel from the Kromskis of Poland. The Prelude is just the wheel for beginners or perhaps a second Kromski wheel for others. It has the look of an antique wheel and the high degree of wood turning that the Kromskis are famous for, but it also has all the touches modern spinners expect.  It has the look of an antique wheel and the high degree of wood turning that the Kromskis are famous for, but it also has all the touches modern spinners expect. The Prelude is a single drive Scotch tension wheel.



The Prelude is a single drive wheel; a first for the Kromskis. The good news here is that it uses the same bobbins as all the other Kromski wheels. This means that, as you consider adding a second or third Kromski wheel, you know your bobbins will work with all the different models.

The Prelude is easy to treadle, easy to transport, and has an 18" diameter wheel (same as the Kromski Minstrel) for excellent ratios. If you like, you can swivel the mother-of-all in line with the bench for a more compact "package" when moving the wheel or for storage. The Prelude is made of European alder and birch. No Kromski wheel has any plastic parts and as such makes the perfect wheel for rein actors.

Additional specifications:
⢠wheel diameter - 18"
⢠orifice height - 26"; size - 3/8"
⢠bobbin size - full 4 oz.; 3 included -
⢠also includes threading hook, attached Lazy Kate, video and bottle of spinning wheel oil
⢠Ratios: 6, 10.5, and 13 to 1
⢠bearings on wheel shaft, bobbins; leather bearings on flyer
⢠weight - 9 lbs.
⢠in addition to a regular hemp drive band an elastic band will be included.
