The AVL Warping Wheel is a product that will help you do your sectional warping in a fast and efficient way without winding any spools. It will allow you to warp directly from different size cones (the ones that have been sitting in your studio for a while now!) or from just about any other form your warp threads are in. The Wheel adjusts from a circumference of two to three yards, allowing you to put on warps of up to 25 yards.
With a built-in tensioning system, the AVL Warping Wheel will also save you from one time-consuming part of standard sectional warping: threading the tension box. You wind directly from the wheel onto the beam!
And maybe the best part about warping with the AVL Warping Wheel: it will give you the freedom of designing as you go, changing color sequences across the warp without complicated pre-calculations and additional spool winding.
Adjustable Tension With the built-in tensioning system, you will be able to adjust the tension of your threads going into a particular section on your sectional beam without threading the tension box.
Revolution Counter You do not have to count your turns any more. The built-in counter will do it for you.
Pivoting Reed The front reed will pivot making it easy to adjust the width of the section to fit exactly in the size of the section without rethreading the reed, starting from 5" (if you just leave the reed straight without pivoting) down to 1" (the minimum size section on your beam). This feature will give you an easy way to create flat layers in each section of your sectional beam.
Adjustable Height Our warping wheel is designed with an adjustable height to make it comfortable for all weavers: from people in wheelchairs to weavers over 6' tall.
Sturdy Base The sturdy base allows you to do the winding as fast or as slow as you feel like without worrying about the wheel tipping over.
