It's a Louet S40 Hatbox wheel. They are no longer made and I've been looking for one for a while. The wheel fits inside the cover and when closed up, it looks a bit like a hatbox. It's very light and I'm hoping this will be my go-to travel wheel.

I do love to see the UPS man! (It helps that he's a really nice guy.)

Miz Mary, he or she hasn't told me a name yet. We should have a chance to get to know each other at SAFF next weekend.

Congratulations! I have never seen one before. How does it spin?
Thanks! It spins very smoothly. It takes very little tension (scotch tension) to get the fiber to draw on the bobbin. The seller sent some fiber and I've been playing all evening.

Congrats!!
I thought about getting one at one time too. They look just neat! I hear the hitchhiker wheel are based on their design.

I hope it works well for you!
So far, so good!

I've never spun on a Hitchhiker, but they do look very similar.
