Our Saxony-style wheel combines an enduring sense of history with state-of-the-art woodworking techniques. Designed in conjunction with Rick and Marge Reeves, the Schacht-Reeves wheel carries on the tradition of their famous spinning wheels.

The Schacht-Reeves wheel is available in 30″ models, as a double- or single-treadle wheel, in ash or cherry. Order your wheel with flyer on the left or right.

Delivery time

Products from Schacht Spindle Company are custom made, by skilled craftspeople in Boulder Colorado. Due to high demand current lead times are 8-10 weeks. (updated Oct. 2022)

Each wheel comes with 3 bobbins, 2 whorls, a Schacht-Reeves kate, and a Schacht-Reeves threading hook. See the Specs tab for spinning ratios.

A note on bobbins: The Schacht-Reeves flyer shaft is 5/16″ in diameter versus the original Reeves 1/4″ diameter. This means that the current Schacht bobbins can’t be used on Reeves-made wheels.
