At the e-spinner retreat in Forks with Judith MacKenzie, Kevin Hansen of HansenCrafts provided some instructions on adjustments for the miniSpinner.
The first has to do with the adjustment to the back of the miniSpinner for noise reduction and looseness of the back plate to hold the bobbin. Mine was a little loose from its trip to and from Forks so here is the video for the adjustment you can make.
There are no knots to be tied and the line to be used to thread the line is a 30 lb monofilament that you can get at a fishing store.
Another area of note is the knob that drives the flyer.
It is possible that if you spin very fluffy, flyaway fiber, some of it may get caught up around this knob. What you want to do it remove all of the excess fiber that can get caught here. Kevin recommended using a dental pick which he stated that dental office have tons of that are just sitting around in drawers. Kevin advised that the next time you are at the dentist, you should ask for one and you will then have a nifty tool to keep your miniSpinner free of problems.
