Thread Storage Carousel
Capacity of 288 Spools & 90 Bobbins
Overall Dimensions: 17" diameter x 24" tall and weighs approximately 30 lbs.
This is a smaller version of the original Thread Carousel at a smaller price. It also features a removable bobbin storage carousel that holds up to 90 bobbins. It is designed to sit on top of the center post and can rotate for easy access. It also lifts off for easy access and can be placed near your work area.
Each shelf measures 17" OD diameter, 4" smaller than the standard size, and holds 48 spools per shelf, for a total capacity of 288 spools. So it has an overall smaller footprint than the larger carousel for those who have a smaller work area. All of the other spacings for storage are identical as the larger version which have the spacing between dowel spindles 2.0" inches, with a clearance height of 3-1/8". The photos shows the Mini 17 loaded with mini spools (550m). These spools measure approx 1-3/4" base, with a height of 2-1/4". The spacing of 2.0 inches on the dowel pins will allow for any spool with a base of 2.0" inches or less, and maximum height of 3" tall. The height of 3" allows for a 1/8" clearance so the shelves spin easily.
The shelves are made of 1/4" MDF material, the base is solid wood, with 1/2" steel center support rod with 3" spacers between each shelf. The top 5 shelves have a 3" inch wide access slot for reaching in to retrieve and re-position the spools. Each of the upper 5 shelves have 4 steel pin to counterweight the access slot.

To purchase the Mini 17", or the Mini 17" and wheels - please make your selection from the dropdown menu and click the BuyItNow to complete your purchase.
Now available with wheels for mobility - see below for information
Above are photos of the base with wheels for mobility. 2" swivel wheels that allow easy rolling on hard surface (I do not reccommend for carpet). The base comes with 3 pre-drilled holes in which the wheels are simply slid into place. The wheels have lock rings on the shaft that keeps the wheel in place. Although the weight of the carousel and stored spools would be enough. The wheels are an additional $15.00 - just select that option on the dropdown.
** Due to increased surcharge fees by Fed-Ex, I have had to temporarily incease the cost of the carousel. I am hoping that these fees can be removed in the near future.
