Dialing in the perfect thread tension has never been easier!
The CRB Thread Carriage Magnets give builders precise tension control on their CRB two spool and four spool thread carriages. Replace your tension spring in minutes and feel the difference immediately. These magnets work on all CRB two and four spool thread carriages, no matter if you are using the advanced hand wrapper or choose to use a rolling thread carriage on your power wrapper. Also compatible with the American Tackle & Pacific Bay horizontal thread carriages.
Made from Neodymium, these thread carriage magnets provide over 13lbs of pull force which makes them ideal for producing smooth consistent tension during all thread wrapping applications. Pack includes 2 pair of magnets (4 total). ID .25" - OD 1" - Thickness .125"
I was hoping for tight wraps and keep amazing tension. Though it keeps some tension it does not keep the tension I was looking for. Though it still keeps the thread moving with no chance of breaking it if I forget that the tension is too high.
I bought these so the tension on the thread would be more even, though these work the opposite way. While wrapping, the thread will tighten down then spring up at once, over and over.
My original order got lost in transit… called customer service to inquire and they sent out a duplicate order immediately ! I eventually received both the orders and when I called to return the extra sent I was told to enjoy the extra!
Terrific coustomer service!
Significant improvement over springs.
Be careful putting the magnets on the threaded rod. If the polarity is not correct then the magnets slam together and crack
I went to change a spool.Took the magnets off, removed the spool of thread. Turned around to get a different spool of thread, and when I turn back the magnets were stuck together, and one was broken into.These thing are to delicate to use on the bench! back to the tension springs.
