Copper wire and dubbing
twisted in Turbo Spinning Block
make the dubbing brush
There are two tension clips on the machine that need to be adjusted when changing wire thicknesses. This tension can be adjusted with a screwdriver and should be taught enough to firmly hold the wire when placed under the clip.
Start with a piece of very fine copper or stainless wire about three times the length of the spinning block. Fold the wire in half and put the loop end on the hook of the spinning head.
Insert one end of the wire into the tension clip (between the clip and the wood board). Be certain the wire has no slack. The wire should run behind the pin (as shown)
Insert one other end of the wire into the wire clip (between the clip and the wood board). Be certain the wire has no slack. The wire should curve around the pin.
With the ends of the wire in the clips fill the groove with dubbing. Don´t dub too heavily, just enough to fit into the slot.
Carefully, remove the wire by the wheel tension clip and bring it over the dubbing in the groove. Keep the wire in side the loop of the wheel. Bring the wire end around the pin and into the tension clip (next to the other wire end).
Pull the wires out of the tension clip together with equal tension. Pull the wire straight in the line with the groove with no slack in the wire. Be certain the dubbing is inside the wire!
Lift the opposite end of the wire out of the groove. Very slowly turn the spinning head. After a few turns gently increase the speed of the spinning head.
Keep spinning the wire is very tightly spun (get as many turns of the wire as you can).
The complete dubbing brush
The dubbing brush, when completed, should be even dense with dubbing and tightly spun.
