SEWING MACHINE IN A NEW ROLEFirst of all we should warn all those who want to do the same spinning wheel that required minor changes in the sewing machine does not affect its appearance and, importantly, does not damage its main purpose is to sewing. The principle of spinning on a homemade electric machines, braking of the bobbins relative to the flyers — and here, of course, remained. Therefore, preserved the basic details: bobbin, rotating the spacecraft Central axis; a device that acts it; the bracket with the guide hole; flyer with hooks — though all in a somewhat modified form. The rotation device receives the ha score of the flywheel of the machine — in this lies the main “trick” of the design.

So, in the friction of the screw is the threaded hole for the Central axis, which is at work winepulse needs to stop and the end of the crankshaft, coming into its center hole. This, first, it eliminates the backlash of the clutch, and, second, the axis is fixed on the center shaft and rotates without “beating”. With the other end placed adjusting unit braking a spool, consisting of a brake and bearing washers, compression springs and adjusting nuts. For mounting the washers are cut two boards threaded under the nut. In addition, in the wheel of the flywheel must be made with a hole for a flyer: it is made of steel wire Ø 5 mm. it drilled through holes, in which insert the hooks of the same wire only Ø 1.5 mm, and solder.
Finally, the last change is the mounting bracket of the motor. In the car it is a special bolt. Now his role will be to carry out front spinning wheels, it is the lower end screwed into the mounting hole. At the other end will be the tip (preferably nylon) with guide bushing. Bushing bronze or plastic, but always well polished, not to interfere with the twisting of the thread.

Device for the yarn is mounted on an electric sewing machine:
1 — sewing machine, 2 — crankshaft machine, 3 — flywheel 4 is a friction screw, 5 — the Central axis, b — spool, 7 — flyer with hooks, 8 — brake disc, 9 — spring, 10 — a retaining washer 11 — adjusting nut, 12 — guide sleeve, 13 tip, 14—, 15 — Ganka bracket, 16 — bracket of the motor.

That’s all rework. Now a few words about setting up spinning wheels. First, we need to adjust the belt tension by moving the motor up and down. Then install by sliding the tip rack, the guide sleeve precisely in the center axis of the bobbin. And the last: the force of the spring under braking should be selected using the adjusting nut so that the thread wound freely and held in the hand easily.
The spinning process is no different from the usual or electricalappliance. However, it is stronger to bind the beginning of the thread to the bobbin, which is immediately after the flywheel begins to rotate. In addition, carefully rasterbate wool. It helps beginners to quickly master the spinning wheel and get better and smooth yarn.
Knitting warm woolen things I use double yarn. Getting it easier to bracket the clamp, usually mounted on the edge of a table, with two fixed axles they put on the already filled bobbin, and thread are, as usual, through the guide sleeve and the hooks of the flyer. Only the V-belt must be replaced by rubber and perehlestnut eight to the flywheel during operation rotates in the other direction and does not spin the primary thread.
