Product Description

Book size charkha from India, made in the Gandhi ashram.

Tuned means I've replaced the drive bands, sanded, polished, loosened, tightened, and generally converted it from the original rustic form to something easier for a westerner to use.

It comes with 3 spindles, a skein winder, and a new band set.

  1. Tuned book charkha 2 Star Review

    (Submitted on Jan 5th 2018)

    First this is the 3rd time I have written this review. The first 2 attempts were rejected apparently because I used my email rather than my husband's who purchased it for me as a Xmas gift. He paid $85 more for a tuned up charkha but the one I received was still really rough and dirty. I had to disassemble it and clean and oil it. All this without any assembly or operating instructions. Also no instructions on replacing drive bands, bearings, or other parts. The spindle assembly was mounted upside down which took some time to figure out. The arms of the skeinwinder do not fit snugly, they flop over and fall out. So unless I figure out a way to fix this the skeinwinder will be useless.
    I understood that paying more for the tuned up charkha meant a cleaned up fully operating charkha that was ready to go. Very disappointed.

  2. Simply Wonderful 5 Star Review

    (Submitted on Feb 23rd 2017)

    The charkha arrived extremely fast, and was packed very well. All of the parts are well made. Set up was a breeze. Spinning on this charkha is beyond words. I am extraordinarily pleased with the purchase.

    Wonderful product. Great price point too! The product shipped quickly. I HIGHLY recommend this company. The owner of this company is a superstar in the cotton spinning community, has high quality products.
