The Minstrel, a new spinning wheel from the Kromskis of Poland, is going to set new standards for castle style wheels. It features a wide, steady base for the double treadle operation and the wheel, which is larger than many upright wheels - 18". The wheel is easy to mount on the two support posts. The third post will mount an optional distaff.

Larger than the Kromski Mazurka, The Minstrel has stronger, bolder lines and a larger base to accommodate the larger wheel diameter and the double treadles. It is a double drive wheel but comes standard with Scotch tension set-up if your prefer the single drive feel. A threading hook and extra whorl are conveniently stored up front for easy access.

The Minstrel is made of European alder and birch. No Kromski wheel has any plastic parts and as such makes the perfect wheel for reenactors. Easy to assemble.
