Little Meggie - Mother Marion "Kick Spindle"

This spindle/wheel is also called Mother Marion's Magnificent Spinning Machine. This type of wheel was developed in 1981 and named after the inventor's mother-in-law. Heavenly Hand-spinning has updated this wonderful device, which works similarly to a drop spindle, but will allow you to sit or stand while spinning, freeing both hands for working with the roving.

The wheel is turned with your foot or hand (depending on whether it's placed on the floor or a table) and spinning occurs off the tip and hook. The length and stationary aspect of this wheel make it an excellent choice for plying.

The combination of light-weight, portability and ease of use, make this wheel/spindle - perfect to take anywhere.

"Little Meggie" has been updated, with the addition of a radial ball bearing. The spindle base rests in the ball bearing, creating a longer spin.

The wheel is handmade in the U.S.A. The wheel and base are made from a mix of hard and softwood. The base is 8 inches in length and the total height from hook tip to base bottom is approximately 13 inches. The wheel measures 4 inches in diameter.
Sold unfinished.

My students learned to spin the ginned cotton in teams, with one student spinning the wheel by pushing by hand, one drafting out the ginned batt, and the third team member bossing ... More details

Product Review: I bought this used before The Woolety offered it for sale. Im pleased to see it here. Honestly there is nothing I don't like. Mine did come with the hook (although the maker akso offered them without the hook) but I removed it and filled in the resulting hole with a wood filler, and sanded it with a pink (nail) emory board. It's a wonderful little wheel that's nicely portable, one can even take it apart and easily reassemble if needed. It makes a nice, fairly large cop and I just use a regular b... More details
