The Capricorn is easily carried using the owl's eyes as a handle.

Weighing 10 pounds, it can be disassembled in less than a minute and It easily fits in a tote bag.  It goes back together just as quickly and a big plus, you don’t need to remove the bobbin and Scotch tension so when it’s back together, you’re ready to spin.


The spinning ratio can be quickly and easily adjusted anywhere between 5:1 to 13:1  by loosening the set screw on the drive wheel using the on-board tool.  After pushing down on the spring lever the wheel can be slid up and down on the shaft.  Near the center of the wheel, the ratio is lowest (slowest) and highest at the outside edge.


Made of Black Walnut and Maple with a sprayed lacquer finish, it is a work of art.
