4-Spool Thread Carriage Upgrade for HWS-1

Product Details

Significantly upgrade the tension system and thread capacity of your HWS-1 wrapping system with the HWS-TC4.

The 4-Spool Thread Extension upgrades the HWS-1 Hand Wrapper with a silky smooth tension system that uses a combination of bearings, springs, and precision knobs to eliminate friction and achieve infinite control of four different threads at once. While conveniently housing four small to medium sized thread spools, this 4-Spool extension also uses the large tension knobs to allow for user-friendly installation and adjustments, such as changing tension, or even swapping out threads.

With this adaptor, you will experience pure, unimpeded thread tension to master underwraps, overwraps, trim bands, inlays, and all the custom thread wraps in between in no time!

  • Keep up to 4 spools at the ready - perfect for color-change weaves
  • Compatible with small & medium sized spools from ProWrap, Pac Bay, Fuji and more
  • Extra-smooth ball-bearing system eliminates friction
  • Large precision adjustment knobs make tension changes and spool-swapping a breeze

Please note this item is an upgrade part and does not include the hand wrapper base unit, sold separately.

4-spool upgrade

Your 4-spool upgrade is a great addition to the HWS-1. Although I'm using it to thread wrap Pens instead of fishing rods, being able to use 3or4 spools at one time is very helpful. It is a great setup.

4-Spool Thread Carriage Upgrade for HWS-1


I like the thought but I don’t know how to keep the threads to keep from making a mess everywhere.

Jon W (West Bend, WI, US)

Comes in handy for tiger wrap or just when you want multiple colors of thread at the ready.

4 spool upgrade

Love that I can swap up to four different colors My only complaint is the flat nuts used always back off at worst possible moment.. I replaced em with lock nuts of the same size and have had no issues since
