My New Toy


I put a third coat of tung oil on the wheel part and the treadle and decided to go ahead and assemble it last night. It was not difficult to assemble at all. I did have to ask my husband a couple of small things, but the only thing he actually helped me with was holding the wheel while I put the crank through and tapping the hub pin in. Other than that, I did it all. I'm very happy with her and have already tried spinning with some Bluefaced Leicester that I had. I think we'll have many happy hours of spinning together!
