The RBS 2-Spool Thread Carriage mounts directly to the RBS aluminum base track and features an all-new ball bearing and spring system that eliminates friction for the ultimate control of your thread wraps. Dual oversize tension knobs secure both small and medium thread spools and allow for precision tension tuning to get your wraps just right. The smooth-rolling base also includes multiple thread guide layouts for better positioning during tricky wraps, and two convenient neodymium magnets to secure razor blades, thread picks, and more. The RBS-TC2 can even be used to upgrade existing power wrappers from Pacific Bay and American Tackle!

Thread carriage is nice but the rollers do not fit track hardly at all and it and the rolling thread runner I bought anytime you move either one they completely pop out of track.
I was using another brand that came with a power wrapper. The other brand had me so frustrated I was about to give up. I saw the video on the RBS thread carriage, I ordered it and it has taken my game to a hole new level for me. BTW it fits my off brand power wrapper perfectly. As you can tell from the picture, blue and silver are my new favorite colors
i use this on the front of an old pac bay rod lathe. works great, fit right on, rolls easily. good tension on thread. takes a bit of trial and error to get spacers, washers and spring to allow thread to roll off but keep tension. .
I tried 7 different brands of power wrappers and this thread carriage is the best. The tension rod lets you back up one-handed, add a thread, tie a knot, or go hands free and answer the phone, while still keeping everything tight. The adjustments and tracking are excellent.
The inside diameter of the eye bolts is a bit rough and needs to be filed and polished before using it.
Overall I like the ability to slide the thread carriage along the rails. I would make a few improvements. First, the eye-bolts should be replaced with something more refined. I find that the thread when loose can slip down in the space where the eye meets the stem of the bolt. Second it would be nice to be able to lock the position of the carriage or at least add some friction so when you are wrapping the carriage is less likely to move. This is especially true when you are at a joint where two base sections meet.
