Starling V3 is a Scotch and Irish tension electric spinning wheel. Designed down to the smallest detail to be quiet, yet maintaining ideals in all departments.  Starling is optimized for high space lace spinning, turning over 2150 rpm, yet is still comfortable jogging at 700 rpm or even walking at 300 rpm.  The skeleton flyer has been engineered to be completely rigid and accurate at the highest speeds.  All components were chosen for long service life and ease of service.  For instance, the motor and maiden bearing are user changeable with no tools.  Ergonomics were carefully considered when designing the pivoting maiden - for bobbin changes, you slip the tension belt off of a pulley and move aside, pop the flyer axle upwards and out of its leather bushing, and pivot the flyer to either side to remove the bobbin.  This means you never have to fiddle with drive belt.  Bobbin capacity is around 12 oz of Fingering weight, with good clearance to the guides for serial “stuffers” (there are several members of the 1 pound club).  Bobbins have been designed to be very strong in all aspects, and will not come apart under yarn pressure.  

Orifice diameter is 12mm (and comes with a 6mm reducer), the internal flyer shoulder loop is 10mm, and the guides are about 8mm.  Wheel and bobbin weigh 2.3lbs (1035g).  Dimensions are 10”L x 8”H x 5”W (6”W at flyer). 25cm x 20cm x 15cm.  

Package includes the wheel, 3 bobbins, 2 drive belts, hook tool, power supply, and misc accessories.
