Flyer falling off spinning wheel


#1

I have an Ashford spinning wheel that I haven’t used for a while and I am having a problem with the flyer. It seems to unscrew itself whilst attached to the drive belt and when i try to spin it just unscrews and falls off. Any help much appreciated! Thanks in anticipation.

I have an Ashford Traditional and I have found that the maiden that holds the orifice side of the flyer comes loose and you need to turn it. Toward the orifice and just enough that it causes the bobbin to snug up better. This probably happens especially not long after you have changed bobbins.
