Lendrum Bulky/Plying Heads

The one on the top came with my Lendrum - it is big, very big. I would be willing to bet that you could put 3 pounds of yarn on that sucker and not fill it. It has the hooks on the side that are permanent and not the new slinding yarn guides. It has a gigantic orifice hole - you could put quarters thru that if you wanted. The one on the bottom is newer and lighter wood. It has 3 bobbins but they aren't nearly as big. They do, however, have 3 different ratios on the flyer and the big one only has two. This one has the sliding yarn guides and not the permanent hooks. The bobbins from the bottom one will not fit the top one so they are not interchangeable. The bottom one is $120 and comes with the two extra bobbins and the larger drive band if you want it. The top one is negotiable (think $33 plus shipping) and it too can come with the drive band if you want it. Let me know.
