Our family of Thimbles are our small folding wheels. Our Thimbles fold up small enough to fit under a seat on an aircraft. Folded dimensions are 7 in. x 14 in. x 18 in. It is 14 inches wide and 18 inches tall when open and has a 14 inch wheel. Thimbles are ideal for traveling by public transportation and will fit into a “roller board” style suitcase measuring at least 17″ wide and 9″ deep. Thimbles are made from a single board of Red Oak so all the grain and coloring matching. Only the Fairy Thimble is made from Hard Maple. All Thimbles come finished with Danish Oil. We use quality hardware to ensure a lifetime of carefree use.
Each Thimble comes with two whorls. A high speed whorl with ratios of 12:1, 14:1, 16:1, 18:1 and a low speed whorl with ratios of 4:1, 6:1, 8:1, 10:1. A drive band tensioner is included for use with the high speed whorl.
