This video will help you understand the basic features of your EEW 5.2.
Here is a video that covers the basics of spinning.
The belt and tension band on the EEW 5.2 will wear out over time. While I do offer a parts kit in store, these are standard off the shelf parts that you can buy elsewhere. I run a small store and shipping is expensive for small items like this so feel free to buy these parts elsewhere from stores that are more efficient at shipping small orders.
- Drive belt is a 1/16th inch diameter and 17.25 inch long round Polyurethane belt
- Tension band is a 12 inch piece of “1/16 inch elastic bungee cord“
- If you have an EEW 5.0 and the black rings that hold the motor in place break you can just replace it with a bunch of wraps of yarn. If you would rather get a replacement black ring you can order them here.
- If you have an EEW 5.1 and the black rings that hold the motor in place break you can just replace it with a bunch of wraps of yarn. If you would rather get a replacement black ring you can order them here.
|Why does the bobbin sometimes vibrate and makes a bunch of noise?||This can happen because the end of the bobbin that is nearest the center of the spinning wheel and rests against the steel spindle starts a harmonic vibration. The fix is quite easy. Just take off the bobbin. Wrap a piece of yarn around the spindle once where the bobbin rests, and tie a knot. Then slide the bobbin back on such that this string is squished between the spindle and the bobbin. This will prevent this vibration.|
|Why isn’t there uptake? (Why isn’t my yarn being pulled onto the bobbin?)|
|Can I use a battery with the EEW 5.2?||Yes you can. This page will help you pick the correct battery pack.|
