We are very pleased to now be able to offer the High Speed Head accessory to fit the Aura. This will be very useful to anyone looking to increase the speed and ratios on the Aura for fine spinning.  The High Speed Head is an ‘accelerator’ that provides fast spinning while allowing the spinner to treadle at a more comfortable pace. It is easy to install by swapping the spinning head, in the same way as the Overdrive, using one bolt. Set up is also simple, just remember to remove the black band and use only the green, effectively turning the Aura into a scotch tension wheel (in the same way as the Overdrive can turn the Rose or Suzie into a modified double drive!). This accessory can be a great choice for those wanting to spin a lot of fine and lace yarns on their Aura.

 

The High Speed Head is much more than a simple accessory. Adding this head to your Rose or Suzie will turn it into a super lace weight spinning wheel.

By modifying and “gearing up” a standard spinning head, it is now possible to spin at ratios up to 38:1 (on the Rose, the maximum speed is closer to 28:1 on a Suzie/Suzie Professional). If you are interested in lace or cotton spinning then this will really help to make the task simpler and much more efficient.

A very light tension spring is used to increase the sensitivity of the brake adjustment which is very important when spinning at high speeds.

A lace kit is a perfect compliment to the high speed head as the small flyers rotate very freely due to their low rotational inertia.

NOTE: Due to the handcrafted nature of our products and updates and improvements to our process, the actual ratio on the high speed head may vary slightly from what has been calculated and displayed in the ratio tables.
