This is our large spinner frame. They are intended for using with the Oxford punch needle but we have people using them as travel rug Hooking frames. It has a solid oak base and rubber no slip on the spinner base to hold the frame securely in place on the table in front of you for punching. Then remove the top from the spinner and use it like a hoop in your lap for rug hooking! The tops are made from oak and are rounded so the grippers are open and spread to hold your backing. If you have ever tried a flat top frame and had trouble with the backing staying on this is why. The grippers MUST be on a curve in order to work 100%, they will hold if stapled on a flat surface, but not as much as on a curve. Our frames are all top quality and we stand behind them 100%. I can't say enough good things about our frames and neither can our happy customers. The head is 15x17 with a 13x15 Hooking or punching area. The head is removable to hold like a hoop while hooking or mounts on the free spinning base for punching! This is pictured with out the arm guard to show the carding strips. All of our frames come with cotton flannel arm protectors. Pictures curtsey of Lynne Gill, Lady of the Club.
