Peek at your spool while you spin! Easy to mount and interchangeable.

The problem with many spinning wheels is that you can't see the fibre on the spool while you're spinning. Usually you have to get up out of your seat to see how full the spool is.

The Bobbin Spy acts like a rear-view mirror for your spinning wheel, letting you see the fibre that's out of sight behind the bobbin flange.

REMOVABLE AND REUSABLE:

The Bobbin Spy's panels can be swapped between two or more bobbins, thanks to the use of reusable adhesive putty, making it easy to remove the mirror panels when required.


SEVEN SIZES TO CHOOSE FROM:

We've sampled a range of bobbins of various sizes and models, to ensure our Bobbin Spies are compatible with most popular brands. Please check out the Compatibility Table in this listing's photos to find a model that's right for you.

If your bobbin isn't listed (or if you don't know the brand), please check the list below and select the model number with a diameter measurement that is EQUAL TO or LESS THAN the diameter of your bobbin's flange (the flat, round bit at the end):

#6527 = 65mm
#7527 = 75mm
#9032 = 90mm
#10032 = 100mm
#11032 = 110mm
#12032 = 120mm
#14532 = 145mm

Be sure to measure the flange that sits further from you when in operating position, as the Bobbin Spy will be mounted to that one.


ATTACHING/DETACHING THE MIRROR PANELS:

It's quite easy, and instructions are included.

Your kit includes a block of reusable adhesive putty and four core spacers. The putty can be divided and placed on the back of the panels, to secure them to the inner side of your bobbin flange.

Using a core spacer is optional, but it will help to correctly position the mirror panels against the flange.

Because the putty is low-tack, you can remove the panels easily and without damage at any time, by gently gripping and pulling the panels off the flange.


PLEASE NOTE:
We've endeavoured to ensure that the Bobbin Spy will not mark or damage your bobbin when attached and detached correctly. However, as we have developed our product independently, we would suggest that you contact the manufacturer of your bobbin if concerned that using a third-party product may affect its warranty.

Arrived right on time (Aussie time correct, USPS WRONG). These are awesome! Got one for each of my spinners (HansenCrafts- will have to be creative with glue dots, as their bobbins are not solid on ends, but I’m well pleased!). Thanks so much!

A fantastic idea! This makes it so much easier to manage changing my flyer hooks without having to lean over and look at my bobbin. My only regret is not buying at least 2!

I love how well these fit for my Ashford traveler bobbins. They overhang by about a mm, but that’s not enough to interfere with my spinning. My only complaint is that once attached to a bobbin, they can’t be removed so I would need to buy several of these. That gets expensive very fast; plus expensive shipping. It’s a wonderful tool, but a bike mirror is cheaper since you’d only need one.

How did I ever live without this? Makes spinning that little bit easier.
