Dual Power version of the Roberta Spinner, (Combo or Jumbo models)
Dual power means that the spinner can be run from either of two sources. i.e. your mains power supply in your particular country, plus from a 12 volt source. It comes with a detachable additional power lead for plugging into a number options. These could be a car cigarette lighter fitting, a portable rechargeable carry pack (such as a car jump starter), or from a small solar panel. This is a great idea for maximum portability. Do your spinning anywhere.
If you decide to have the dual power version, be sure to order this at the time of purchase. Because internal electronic wiring is done differently in these spinners, it is something that is not very convenient to be adding later.

Why not consider adding it to your machine. Easy to use. The spinner still runs as before, with the front on/off switch remaining in operation. To pause the drafting of the fibre, place your foot on the control, or just use your elbow or thigh pressure. Take the pressure off the control to continue drafting again.
Anyone able to handle a screwdriver and a drill, can very easily fit the pause control with the instructions provided. Only $96.00 Australian dollars, plus post and packing. Or if you prefer, you can have it factory fitted for a little extra.
