Spinning Wheel Restoration

A challenging project was brought into the shed recently, and that was to restore a spinning wheel to working order. As this would involve woodturning skills, the project was assigned to the capable hands of Bob Graves. The challenge was to replace a missing spoke from the wheel, as well as a missing leg, actuator arm, foot treadle and support bar. Bob proved up to the task, with help and advice from various shed members, and the spinning wheel is now back to full working order.
