Glimäkra Bobbin Winder, thin shaft


Glimäkra Bobbin Winders - Made in Sweden for over 100 years. 

We carry the thin or fine spindle bobbin winder from Glimäkra. The fine spindle is more versatile as you can wind quills as well as bobbins. Just put a cardboard quill on the spindle and then put the larger bobbin on top of the quill. It usually is a perfect fit. If you want to weave with fine threads, the thinner shuttles, thinner quills and fine spindle bobbin winder will be better. The quills can be cut to length and will usually hold more thread. These winders have oiling points to make them last and insure easy functioning. The winders should always be cranked or turned clockwise to avoid damage to the brass gear.
