** This wheel is no longer being made. We have one floor model for sale at our shop. It’s already assembled, so we would prefer not to have to ship it. Please contact us if you would like to know more***
The Elizabeth is beautifully proportioned with a new 24” drive wheel.

Ball bearings allow smooth, effortless treadling.

Wheel diameter: 24″
Bobbin capacity: 3-4 ounces
