Tension Knob for the Brake Band - Ashford single drive wheels  -  
Available as a SET: Tension Knob, 2x tension springs and brakeband
OR Just the Tension Knob - please choose


Replacement brake band tension knob - for Ashford Spinning Wheels with Scotch Tension made prior to around 1975
Will this fit my wheel? Place a normal pencil in the hole... now measure the amount of sideways movement at the end of the pencil..
Only moves around 5mm, then you probably need this item...
Moves around 10mm+, then you probably need the newer tension knob ... a different item...
We generally find if this knob is missing, so is the spring and brakeband hence initially we offer this knob as a set of knob, two springs and nylon brakeband.
How to fit it? Generally the knob will be at the back left of the maiden bar (Not here? - you probably need the newer knob)  The nylon is tied to the spring which will attach to the open screw hook (rear right), thread the nylon through the hole in the tension knob and put a knot in the end to stop it slipping out of the knob, place the knob in the hole and turning the knob, wind the nylon around the knob until the spring JUST starts to expand. The nylon brakeband goes up and over the bobbin, resting in the groove of the bobbin. This will be a great start point for tension.
Second spring?  You will find out what this is for as you progress!! Leave the surplus nylon around the knob for now...
